NCAA Basketball: Louisiana Tech at Texas John Gutierrez-USA TODAY Sports

The men’s basketball team escaped disaster and beat Tennessee State.

When his chance came to make a critical play, Matt Coleman did not have time to think about all of his missed shots and turnovers.

He just drove toward the basket and hit a shot in the lane with nine seconds remaining, enabling Texas to escape an upset attempt by Tennessee State 47-46 on Monday night.

The men’s and women’s diving and swimming teams excel again.
