AUSTIN, Texas — It had been 15 years and 22 days since the Texas women’s basketball team took down a team ranked atop the Associated Press poll.

Sunday the Longhorns had quite the day, taking down visiting No.1 Stanford with a loud and raucous fanbase behind them.

Texas, which improved to 7-4, toppled No. 1 Stanford, in a 69-64 victory, is one of the most exciting women’s basketball games ever to be played on the Forty Acres. [habeabk]
