    Eamonn Brennan

    Friday morning brought some welcomed news for the Texas men's basketball team: Point guard Isaiah Taylor was cleared to play in time for Saturday's Big 12 opener against Texas Tech. On Nov. 20, when Taylor suffered the broken wrist that would side...

  2. Jonathan Holmes keeps Texas on track

    Eamonn Brennan

    The game was already over. Two minutes left, Texas up 64-51. Cruise control. Texas forward Jonathan Holmes was on the right baseline corner when he caught the bounce-pass product of Javan Felix's scuttled dribble penetration. Cal's defense stretch...

  3. Saddle Up: Texas in the spotlight

    Eamonn Brennan

    Texas vs. No. 15 Georgetown, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN: It is easy to take shots at Rick Barnes. It is easy to look back at the NBA talent that has passed through Austin, and to contrast that with the lone Final Four on Barnes' resume, and accuse Barnes of not...

    Eamonn Brennan

    This Saturday promised one of the best wall-to-wall slates of college hoops fixtures thus far this season, and the afternoon action didn't disappoint. In fact, it just about blew my mind. Let's take a comprehensive look at what we learned from said a...

  6. On evaluating Texas' Rick Barnes

    Eamonn Brennan

    Rick Barnes has a unique challenge. Before he arrived in Austin, Tex., the Longhorns were a solid program but hardly a national one. Thirteen years later, Barnes has consistently recruited top talent and consistently competed for Big 12 titles. Texas...

  7. Jordan Hamilton not happy with Rick Barnes

    Eamonn Brennan

    There weren't too many major slips in last night's NBA draft; if anything, most of the players selected in the first round felt like they went higher than expected. There were no green room mishaps, no embarrassing Brady Quinn-style debacles. But for...

  8. Report: Tristan Thompson will turn pro

    Eamonn Brennan

    On March 19, a day before his team's second-round NCAA tournament loss to Arizona, Texas forward Tristan Thompson made a bold but apparently assured statement to reporters, including our own Pat Forde: "I'm coming back another year," Thompson said r...

  9. Doubting Texas? You're not alone

    Eamonn Brennan

    Throughout November, December and January, there was always that sneaking suspicion, that voice in the back of your head: Could Texas, like last year's baffling team, still fall apart? I thought we were well past that point. After all, the Longhor...

  10. Brennan: Observations from the week

    Eamonn Brennan

    Five observations from the past week: 1. The SEC is beginning to take shape. If Kentucky had beaten Florida on Saturday night, the SEC East picture would have continued to look bunched and muddled. In many ways, it still does. Tennessee is 5-3, Ge...

  11. Texas still doubting its talented 'Horns

    Eamonn Brennan

    The ghosts of disappointments past continue to haunt the Texas Longhorns in the present. We all know the story by now: Last year's Longhorns started 17-0, rose all the way to No. 1 in the nation, and appeared to be one of the three or four teams capa...

  12. Longhorns comprehensive in rout of A&M

    Eamonn Brennan

    A few scattered thoughts on Texas' dominant 81-60 win over Texas A&M on Wednesday: If you're Texas, you can't ask for a much better first-half performance. Dogus Balbay and company did what they've been doing to most opponents this season, fo...

  13. Saddle Up: Lone Star superiority on the line

    Eamonn Brennan

    Saddle Up is our semi-daily preview of the night's best basketball action. If you'll allow this brief bit of seriousness, I ask that you consider making a contribution to your cancer charity of choice in honor of a family friend who lost his battle w...

  14. UConn resets with huge win at Texas

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's hard not to like Connecticut now. Before Saturday afternoon's thrilling entry into the "best game of the year" discussion -- or, as my editor just said, the best non-Missouri game of the year -- the Huskies' stock was in clear decline. Gone w...

  15. Illinois win promising for Longhorns

    Eamonn Brennan

    Yours truly is going to get fully back into the morning recap game starting Monday morning -- this was a bit of a weird week, as my very confused internal clock can attest -- because there is too much good basketball going on every night to not try t...

  16. Texas still talking about leadership

    Eamonn Brennan

    It was the second-most overused question at Big 12 media day, ranking just behind the constant queries of Kansas State coach Frank Martin on how his team would "handle the expectations" of being the Big 12 preseason favorite. No. 2 was for Rick Barne...
