New, 24 comments

"I think moral victories are more of a media thing, to be honest with you."

The Texas Longhorns continue to improve under the leadership of Shaka Smart, appearing in the Top 25 for the first time this week.

The 'Horns (16-8) came up just short Monday night against the No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners, falling 63-60 in Norman. On Tuesday, Smart addressed the media about the game and the rest of the season. He was understandably disappointed about the loss.

"I think moral victories are more of a media thing, to be honest with you," he said. "If your focus is on growth, then every game should be a victory."

Smart also said the 'Horns were one play away from a victory but didn't make enough stops defensively to come away with a win.

The next game for Texas is Saturday at Iowa State.
