The UT crowd was rockin' at Ferrell Center in Waco last night. But perhaps the best UT crowd moment came when the players were in the locker room at halftime.
Baylor Athletics ran a contest sponsored by some car dealerships. Each of three dealerships sent a customer to the game. At halftime, they each had a chance to dribble down the court and put up a 3-point shot. The first one to make a bucket would win a 42-inch flat-screen TV.
The first fan dribbled down the court ... and missed. The second missed. The third fan, wearing a nondescript black shirt and jeans, took the ball up the court and executed a very nice jump shot. Score!
The crowd went wild! Until ... the winner got a smug look on his face, threw up both arms and flashed the double Hook 'Em. He just stood there, turning around to face different sections of the crowd, with his Hook 'Em held defiantly high.
Again, the crowd went wild. The large contingent of Longhorn fans cheered. And the home crowd booed, and booed, and booed.
