Texas Longhorns Women's Basketball Schedule
When the college basketball season gets underway there is hardly a
better place to be than in Austin, Texas where both the men's and women's team are ready to put on a show. Both teams have
figured strongly on both the national scene and in the Big 12, but the women's team has been a national power for quite some
time now. The team has won twenty two conference championships and ranks eleventh in the NCAA in terms of total NCAA Tournament
wins while ranking fifth in the NCAA for total victories in women's college basketball. Their schedule is loaded with tough
games and some of the best programs in all of college basketball will be heading to Frank Erwin Events Center looking to come
out with a win against U.T.
But even though the games at home are obviously going to be all the rage once again this
season, don't make the mistake of thinking that away games won't be packed with Longhorns colors as well. Put down the remote,
hit the road and cheer for your Longhorns on the road and you'll see an away matchup from a completely different angle. Once
the game is on the line and the Longhorns are digging in, particularly against a prominent Big 12 opponent, you'll definitely
be glad that you're not still sitting at home wondering what the atmosphere of the big game is like.
Women's Basketball Team Info
While the Big 12 has long been known for its college football, basketball has always been
a big deal in the conference as well and in recent years several schools have stepped up their game making it extremely difficult
for a team to navigate the tough conference schedule. Perennial powerhouses Kansas and Oklahoma State always are staunch competition
and with the recent development of programs like Baylor and Kansas State, the conference is only getting tougher. But the
good news for Longhorns' fans is that they tend to have plenty of talented playmakers who know a thing or two about lighting
up the scoreboard and taking down a big opponent, giving you plenty of reasons to head out and make sure you don't miss a
shot of the action.
When you set foot into Frank Erwin Events Center for a University of
Texas Longhorns home basketball game this will all be clear. As the teams set up for opening tip-off, the fans stand up and
vociferously cheer for their alma mater and hometown favorites. Though there are lots of different ways to see college basketball
played at its highest possible level, there is still nothing quite like being there and actually watching the drama unfold
before your very eyes. Suddenly, watching from home feels a bit like trying to understand the scope of the pyramids through
a postage stamp, which pales in comparison to seeing it in person. This is a game that springs to a completely different level,
providing plenty of incentive to head out and see the action the way it was meant to be seen.
Women's Basketball History
Women's college basketball is one of the top sports in the nation on a year to year basis,
and a team that always seems to be right in the middle of the action is Texas. With more than two dozen tournament appearances,
three runs to the Final Four and even a national title (1986), the Longhorns have one of the dominant programs in the country
and routinely make runs deep in the Big Dance. This is the type of program that always seems to be loaded with superstar-level
talent that knows how to take their game to the next level, and fans are optimistic that it's only a matter of time before
they make it back to the top of college basketball.
