The Texas Longhorns need a bounce back victory after losing to Texas A&M on Wednesday. The Texas Longhorns are averaging 70.3 points on 36.8 percent shooting and allowing 72.3 points on 34.5 percent shooting. Isaiah Taylor is averaging 16.5 points and four assists while Cameron Ridley is averaging 10 points and 12 rebounds. Javan Felix is dishing one assist and Connor Lammert is grabbing six rebounds. The Texas Longhorns are shooting 28.6 percent from beyond the arc and 64.7 percent from the free throw line. Texas has now lost two tough games and will clearly need some time before getting comfortable under new head coach Shaka Smart. The Texas Longhorns have lost six of their last nine regular season games.
The Huskies are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games following a S.U. loss and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games. The Longhorns are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss.
The Washington Huskies just beat the Texas Longhorns a couple of weeks ago, as Texas shot just 26 percent from the field. Based on what we've seen from the Longhorns since, there's no reason to think this game will be any different. Texas doesn't look like a good basketball team right now.
