UT Becoming A Basketball Powerhouse

It's a great time to be a Longhorn.Texas has been perceived to be a football school predominantly but those times are gone.Now we are competative in all the men's and women's sports that we field teams in.  

I can remember going to men's basketball games in Gregory Gym in the late 50s and early 60s where most crowds numbered only in the hundreds.  

Jody Conradt was winning the SWC almost every year and ran up one undefeated season for a national championship but our men's team was not as successful.  

Today only two Div. I schools have thier football,and men's and women's basketball teams ranked by the AP.Those schools would be UT &OU.  

 UT,OU and Baylor have both thier men's and women's basketball teams ranked in the top 25.  

Both the Horn;s men's and women's teams are now ranked # 14.   It would seem that we are turning into a basketball powerhouse.March Madness should really be fun this year.
