No. 13 Texas finishes strong against TCU to start pivotal stretch of the season



Texas – The stretch of five games in 10 days started Saturday for the Texas Longhorns. The pivotal point of the Texas basketball season started with a 70-55 win over TCU.

Shaka Smart’s No. 13 Longhorns went on a 11-0 run in the second half to finish off a complete win over the Horned Frogs. Andrew Jones finished with 19 points to lead the game. Matt Coleman had 15 points.

The Longhorns are 13-5 and 7-4 in Big 12 play while TCU drops to 11-8, 4-6 in the Big 12. This was the first meeting of the season between the two schools after their Jan. 23 game in Fort Worth was postponed because of COVID-19 issues in the TCU program.

Next week, Texas will play OU on Tuesday, Iowa State on Thursday, West Virginia on Saturday and Kansas on Feb. 23.

COVID-19 issues at other programs forced the schedule shuffle. Texas’ original game at Iowa State on Jan. 20 was postponed due to Big 12 protocols.
