Texas is a pretty good basketball team that plays quality defense, allowing 64 or less points in 10 of its last 13 games. The Longhorns also have multiple players who can hurt you on the offensive end. However, as we know, UConn is a whole different animal and usually slaughters good teams in its sleep.
The Huskies should have no problem winning this game by at least 30 points.
