Texas Longhorns Basketball Schedule in 2014-15
The Texas Longhorns are ready to take to the court this season and
show their opponents that they are a force to be reckoned with. This Longhorns team has some serious talent, and they're looking
to make their mark on the rest of the country. The Longhorns call the Big 12 Conference home, and while the Big 12 had long
been known for its college football, basketball has always been a big deal in the conference as well. The Longhorns nearly
notched 24-11 record last season, and won 11 of their conference games. The team was able to make the NCAA Tournament, but
they were knocked out in the early rounds. The team is hoping to shoot up the conference standings this season, and could
have the necessary talent to make it happen. 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. However, as
history has shown, this is easier said than done and the Longhorns are always prepared to give their home crowd something
to cheer for.
The Longhorns will face a tough test when the Oklahoma State Cowboys come to town to hit the court and
do battle. The Cowboys have one of the best teams in the Big 12 on a regular basis, and this season should follow suit. The
Cowboys are sure to be a tough out for the Longhorns, but that doesn't mean that Texas can't come out on top with some disciplined
basketball. If the Longhorns can emerge from this matchup victorious it will signal to the rest of the conference that they
The Longhorns will certainly have their hands full when the Kansas Jayhawks come to town this season
as well. The Jayhawks have one of the top programs in the sport, and they're always a force to be reckoned with. The Jayhawks
lost their two best players in the offseason to the National Basketball Association, but that doesn't mean that they're going
to miss a beat. Kansas always recruits the very best, and there are surely some talented players waiting to fill the shoes
of the departed. The Longhorns would love to show the rest of the conference that they're a contender for the Big 12 title
by taking down the Jayhawks. If the Longhorns have a great crowd behind them, they're all the more likely to make it happen.

Texas Longhorns Basketball
The Texas Longhorns basketball team dates back to 1906 and the hoops program at Texas has developed into one
of the premier destinations for the best high school players in the country on an annual basis. The Longhorns have had a lot
of success over the years, reaching the NCAA Tournament 30 times. The team has been to the elite eight seven times and made
it all the way to the Final Four on three occasions. The Texas Longhorns have seen some incredible players come through the
program over the years. One of the best players to ever suit up for the Longhorns was Kevin Durant. While Durant only played
in Austin for one year, he made a real impact during that single season, winning the National Player of the Year award with
relative ease. Durant has gone on to star in the National Basketball Association, where he is currently one of the top players
in the league. Surprisingly, Texas is yet to win a National Championship, or even reach the title game, but that is something
the team is working hard to change as soon as this season.
The sport of college basketball
is one of the most thrilling to see in person, and that is evidenced by the thousands upon thousands of fans that attend games
on a regular basis. Basketball is a fast-paced game that keeps the fans enthralled for the duration, and in college hoops
that means 40 minutes of game time. If you've never been out to a big-time college hoops game in person, then this is the
season to change that. The Texas Longhorns always have some exciting playmakers that are ready to put on a show for the fans
every time out, and you can see that for yourself when you head out to a home game this season.
When was the last time the Texas Longhorns were able to reach the Final Four?
The answer is
2003, ending a drought of more than 50 years. The Longhorns still have not been able to claim that elusive National Championship,
though they are hoping that will change in the very near future. Fans of the Longhorns will go nuts when that day finally
comes, and it will be an historic event for this basketball program.
Texas Longhorns Basketball Fans
hoops fans love a good rivalry, and that is certainly the case with the Texas Longhorns fans. The main rivalry with Texas
is with the Oklahoma Sooners. The basketball rivalry began in 1996 when the Big 12 was formed, but the two schools already
had a long standing football rivalry that just spilled over to other sports when they began competing against one another
in conference play. As Texas has become a national power under head coach Rick Barnes a rivalry has emerged with the traditional
conference power the Kansas Jayhawks. In recent years the two programs have found themselves neck and neck for conference
titles as well as higher national rankings and seeding in the NCAA Tournament. Both of these rivalries have been fun to watch
over the years and should continue to provide fans with plenty of thrills. Get out to the arena this season and seat yourself
among some of the biggest and best basketball fans in the nation.
