College Basketball: Texas vs Texas St. open thread

Tip off at 3 p.m. CST televised on FSSW.

Got a pot of venison and elk chili simmering and a 4 pack of Guinness pub draught already talking to me.

My manlove for John Wall is approaching unhealthy territory as he diced up Indiana TJ Ford style, finishing with 11 pts / 8 dimes / 6 reb. When he's not going off for 25 points he's making sure his teammates do. A one point halftime lead turned into a 20 pt boat race with minimal effort.

La Salle is hanging with Kansas early on and faring well in the paint. The Jayhawks look bored.

The Bobcats (3-6) haven't beaten the Longhorns since a 33-31 win in Austin on Dec. 7, 1937. The streak ends NOW! Actually, the Bobcats might not surpass that 33 point effort and I feel comfortable predicting Texas will. Look for the freshman to get a lot of minutes as the prep for UNC/MSU continues. One of these guys is due to go off and I'm going with Hamilton.

Any other predictions?
