Texas basketball tries to get right against Louisiana Monroe

The game tips at 7 p.m. Central, and airs on the Longhorn Network. On Friday night, the Texas Longhorns nearly lost a game that they should not have lost. Facing the Arkansas Razorbacks on a night where sophomore guard Matt Coleman played about as poorly as he has at Texas, Shaka Smart gave the ball to senior Kerwin Roach II and freshman Courtney Ramey and the two guards saved Texas’ bacon. But it did take a tough three by Roach at the end of regulation and a tense overtime to do it. An ugly win is better than an ugly loss, but at this point in the season if we judge the team as how it is...

Texas outlasts Arkansas at the buzzer for 73-71 OT win in the Armed Forces Classic

A Kerwin Roach II prayer from the perimeter forced overtime and Texas was able to narrowly outlast Arkansas in extra minutes. In front of over a thousand soldiers and families for the annual Armed Forces Classic at Fort Bliss in El Paso, the Texas Longhorns outlasted their former SWC rival Arkansas Razorbacks in overtime, 73-71. In honor of the military members in attendance, both teams wore camo military-themed uniforms with ‘U.S.A.’ labeled on the back.

Texas G Kerwin Roach II is trying to take the next step as a senior on offense and defese

The returning starter will need to provide leadership, consistent playmaking, steady shooting, and the type of defensive presence he promised, but couldn’t always deliver last season. Yes, while Kerwin Roach II won’t be starting the season the way he envisioned, that does not mean his leadership ability takes a back seat. The senior guard will use this setback to grow and learn from his mistakes as he prepares for his next, and final, season with the Texas Longhorns basketball team. As you have likely read by now, Roach will miss two preseason scrimmages as well as the season opener...
