Longhorns fans will be hard pressed to recall a better overall weekend than the one recently past. Those in charge of lighting the Tower orange after a win had their choice.
On Friday, the soccer team got its first NCAA Tournament win since 2008, blanking Rice 3-0 at Mike A. Myers Stadium.
Shortly after the soccer players sang “Eyes” with smiles, the men’s basketball team got down to business. Freshman sensation Myles Turner made an electric debut in a sea of bucket hats and the Longhorns got the first of two convincing weekend wins, 85-50 over North Dakota State.
