The Texas Longhorns men’s basketball team is once again trending down, most recently due to blowing what was a solid 19-point lead on Sunday to the West Virginia Mountaineers.
Disappointing indeed, after it seemed as though the Longhorns were trending up last week at No. 12, only to fall back to No. 14 in this week’s AP Poll, released earlier this morning.
Texas is now 13-6 overall, and sitting at 7-5 in Big 12 Conference play.
It’s perhaps needless to say that the season is spiraling into something of a head-scratcher.
Elsewhere in the Big 12, the Baylor Bears are sticking at No. 2 nationally, reliably behind the leading Gonzaga Bulldogs. The Oklahoma Sooners are trending up, now ranked No. 7. As are the West Virginia Mountaineers after their win over the Longhorns, at No. 10. The Kansas Jayhawks are also No. 17, and the Texas Tech Red Raiders are just behind Kansas, at No. 18.
Texas take on Kansas at home in the Frank Erwin Center on Tuesday.
