The Texas Longhorns are headed to Madison Square Garden for the NIT semifinals.

NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Conference Tournament-Kansas vs. Texas Amy Kontras-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas basketball team continues its run in the NIT, as they dominate the Colorado Buffaloes setting up a rematch against the TCU Horned Frogs. Texas dropped both regular season matchups with the Horned Fros and has its work cut out for it as it prepares for the big semifinal matchup (2:43).

In what is becoming a troublesome trend, the Texas baseball team travelled to San Antonio, TX for a weekend series against the Incarnate Word Cardinals and fell 3-2, before sweeping its weekend series against Xavier. Texas has been incredible at home on the season, while actually turning in a losing record. What will help Texas come out on top against the Texas A&M Aggies in this week’s Tuesday night tilt (10:59).

The Longhorns’ spring practice schedule continued with their first scrimmage over the weekend and injuries kept several starters off the field. Redshirt freshman Casey Thompson was pressed into the first team as Sam Ehlinger recovered from an undisclosed illness, with four projected starters on defense sidelined by injuries (20:16).

As always, we take you around the campus looking at the sports that don’t get top billing with Downing the Forty (42:43) before closing the show out with Bang the Drum (49:13). Kyle looks at some NCAA postseason history, while Gerald dives in on some Twitter beef between rivals.
