Rick Barnes goes for career win #400 tomorrow against Texas State. Horns fans can catch the game at the Erwin Center at 3:00 p.m. or on FoxSports Southwest (Texas viewers only). BON game preview forthcoming.
Texas isn't ranked in the Top 25 yet, but at least one ESPN writer - Andy Katz - sees good things on the way. Katz has the 'Horns ranked #15 on his weekly power ballot. Elsewhere, the 'Horns rank #20 in Jeff Sagarin's predictor ratings.
One final note: freshman Kevin Durant's 21.6 points per game ranks 15th nationally. Two years, Kevin? Just two? Pretty please?
And, lastly, for our volleyball fans in the group - head over to Corn Nation for coverage of the national championship game between Nebraska and Stanford.
