For the first time since the fall, a certain Texas athletic team will be taking on one from LSU. This time around will see the men’s Texas basketball program taking on the LSU Tigers on Jan. 25 in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. Head coach Shaka Smart saw his team’s fortunes take a turn for the worst of late. Big 12 pay wasn’t favorable at all to Texas, especially during the last two games.
In an eventual loss at home at the Frank Erwin Center at the hands of the Kansas Jayhawks, the Texas Longhorns basketball program saw a first half lead diminish to the tune of a 66-57 final score.
