Big 12 Tournament - Texas vs. TCU: Preview & Open Thread

USA TODAY Sports

Texas opens its Big 12 Tournament run against lowly TCU.

Loading Scores

The Texas Longhorns (15-16) enter the Big 12 Tournament as the 7th place team, needing at least 2 wins to end the season at .500. Their first opponent is the last place TCU Horned Frogs (11-20), who--SPOILER ALERT--are still horrible. But they are on a one-game winning streak!

The game tips roughly around 8:30, after the conclusion of the 8/9 WVU/Texas Tech cripple fight. Both games will be broadcast on the Big 12 Network, if you're lucky enough to be in an area that has an affiliate station.

The Longhorns have handled the Horned Frogs in both matchups this year. Texas should win, which is of course very different from saying Texas will win.

Win to play another. Hook 'em.
