Horns Headed To Sweet Sixteen

Daily Round Up: Wednesday, March 21, 2018

NCAA Womens Basketball: Texas at Baylor Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

The women’s basketball team is going to the Sweet Sixteen after an impressive win over Arizona State. The Horns play UCLA Friday night in Kansas City.

The best individual matchup Friday might be between the teams’ point guards — All-America candidates Jordin Canada of UCLA and Brooke McCarty of Texas. Canada leads the Bruins in scoring with an average of 17.6 points per game, and she ranks seventh nationally with an average of 7.1 assists per game. McCarty leads the Longhorns in three-pointers made (60), assists per game (3.4) and free-throw percentage (.889).

Mo Bamba is one-and-done.

“After an incredibly rewarding year at The University of Texas, I will not be returning to school as I will be entering the NBA Draft,” Bamba said in a statement.

This decision comes as no surprise, as Bamba has not shied away from his lofty goals of being selected in the upper echelon of the 2018 NBA Draft.
