Texas Longhorns Men's Basketball Non-Conference Schedule Released

Longhorn returnees Myck Kabongo & Jonathan Holmes face a tough non-conference schedule next year.

The 2012-13 Texas Longhorns Men's Basketball non-conference schedule was released by the Athletics Department today. There are no major surprises, as news has trickled out over the past few weeks announcing the marquee opponents. It's still nice to see it on paper, though.

From December 4 to December 22, the Longhorns will face an absolutely brutal 3 week stretch, playing Georgetown, UCLA, North Carolina, and Michigan State (along with a sandwiched Texas State game). Texas will also travel to Hawaii to take part in the Maui Invitational, with opponents announced at a later date.

At first glance, this year's non-conference schedule is much more aggressive than last year's, which head coach Rick Barnes kept purposefully easy to ease his young team into the season. With higher expectations this year, the Longhorns are going hard. Beyond the four power programs above, Fresno State could be a feisty team under former Longhorns assistant coach Rodney Terry, and Texas could also face a tough draw in Maui.

Full schedule is after the jump.

11/9: vs. Fresno State

11/12: vs. Coppin State

11/19 - 11/21: Maui Invitational (schedule still TBD)

11/27: vs. Sam Houston State

12/4: vs. Georgetown (Jimmy V Classic @ Madison Square Garden)

12/8: vs. UCLA (@ Reliant Stadium)

12/15: vs. Texas State

12/19: vs. North Carolina

12/22: @ Michigan State

12/29: vs. Rice
