Aston hopes ‘soul seaching’ sparks Texas on a big run

From the high of taking down No. 18 Iowa State to the low of getting beaten handily by Kansas State, the Texas Women’s Basketball team experienced it all over the past week.

The way the No. 11 Longhorns bounce back with TCU coming to town for a 1 p.m. tipoff Saturday will go a long way toward being able to tell where Texas stands so far through Big 12 Conference play.

Head coach Karen Aston put the loss at K-State on an inconsistency in preparation coming off the high of the big win, something she’s tried to put into perspective for her squad this week.

“I thought they showed some responses to the things we asked them to do yesterday and today — which would be either you’re gonna have a pity party and feel sorry, or your gonna respond and try to fix the things you didn’t do well,” she said. “And I was pleased with today.”
