Texas Crushes OU, Moves to Big 12 Semifinals

The Texas Longhorns coasted to a quarterfinal victory over the Oklahoma Sooners, 74-54, in Kansas City. As Longhorn fans have seen during many conference games, Texas jumped to an early double digit lead, led big at halftime, lost some focus in the second half but still won convincingly.

There was a lot to like about the Longhorn performance. Jordan Hamilton rediscovered his shooting stroke, especially during his 7-of-9 for 15 point performance in the first 20 minutes. J'Covan Brown was really good off the bench. He was patient on offense-took his jumper when appropriate and attacked the paint off the bounce when angles allowed. Tristan Thompson was his usual beast self on the glass and on the low block.

The Longhorns absolutely dominated the defensive glass. Throughout most of the game, OU had just a single offensive rebound. For a team that already struggles to score, this meant game over for the Sooners.

Texas now moves on to the Big 12 semifinals and will take on the winner of Texas A&M and Missouri in a Friday night game. Game should tip around 8:30 pm and will be shown on the Big 12 Network.

Kansas will take on Colorado in the other semifinal. That game will tip at 6 pm and will also be shown on the Big 12 Network.
