Texas Basketball: Longhorns stave off surprising McNeese upset bid

What should’ve been one of the easiest games of the remaining schedule of the 2019-20 regular season for the Texas basketball program turned into an absolute battle down the stretch against the lowly 2-5 McNeese State Cowboys.

It looked as if head Texas basketball coach Shaka Smart and his team had a lot of momentum headed into this matchup against McNeese State. A lengthy big of rest after facing the Georgetown Hoyas and Cal Golden Bears in the 2K Empire Classic at Madison Square Garden in New York City apparently didn’t do the Texas Longhorns basketball program any favors.
