AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas men’s basketball team no-showed in its biggest game of the year Saturday, getting run out of the gym, 81-52, in Ames by an Iowa State team missing its best player.

While the Longhorns (14-11 overall, 4-8 against teams from the Big 12) have been riddled by injuries, most notably to forward Jericho Sims and guard Jase Febres, it was a baffling performance by a team with its back already against the wall in regard to qualifying for the NCAA Tournament.
