Rick Barnes and the #15 Texas men look to snap a two game losing streak tonight against Texas State at the Erwin Center. The Horns easily beat the Bobcats 95-63 last season and hold an overall series lead of 34-5. Texas State hasn't beaten Texas since 1937. Before the season, we could have easily chalked this one up in the win column, but after two blowout losses we better pay attention. In addition, the Horns will have a severe depth problem.
Brad Buckman: Knee / Calf injury; listed as doubtful
Daniel Gibson: Concussion; listed as questionable
Mike Williams: Ankle; listed as doubtful
JD Lewis: Knee Injury; will miss the game
Dion Dowell: Transferring
So, here is my best guess at the starting lineup:
Center: Lamarcus Aldridge
Power Forward: Conner Atchley
Small Forward: PJ Tucker
Shooting Guard: Kenton Paulino
Point Guard: AJ Abrams
Subs: Craig Winder (guard)
Uhh, we could have a problem. Head to the Erwin Center at 7 PM to see if the Horns can stay out of foul trouble and keep five players on the court at all times.
