The women’s basketball team has advanced to the Sweet 16.
“It’s the standard,” said McCarty, speaking about the team’s recent success in the NCAA Tournament.
The women's team survived 80-84 in a win over NC State.
X factor: Holmes made those two big plays at the end of the game, drawing the charge and then getting the rebound off her teammate's missed free throw and the putback. Holmes finished with 16 points and 9 rebounds.
The baseball team lost to Texas Tech in their first series in conference play.
“Texas Tech is a lot better than us right now, and we’ve got to improve,” said Texas coach David Pierce, whose team is 13-9 and now 0-3 in Big 12 play. “The one thing I do think, we have is some resilience. There’s nobody in that clubhouse giving up; it’s really early.”
At least Texas won something last year. UT won the Tom Herman Sweepstakes and the spring game is one to watch.
Sure, he was a dynamic offensive coordinator under Urban Meyer at Ohio State. Then he shocked college football by taking Houston to Texas-sized expectations in the first year as a head coach. Last year, Herman came back down to earth, and he inherits a dysfunctional mess at Texas.
