Shaka Smart’s fifth season on the Forty Acres is set to get underway this evening.

NCAA Basketball: NIT Final Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

At long last, the college basketball season is upon us and the Texas Longhorns will kick off their 2019-20 campaign at home against the Northern Colorado Bears.

Entering his fifth season on the Forty Acres, Shaka Smart will be looking to lead his Longhorns back to the NCAA Tournament after falling short last season, though Texas did end the season on a high note, winning each of their final five games en route to an NIT title.

However, the expectation in Austin is, of course, a trip to the Big Dance, and that journey begins tonight at the Frank Erwin Center.

Tip-off against northern Colorado is scheduled for 7 p.m. CT on Longhorn Network.

This is your game thread.
