AUSTIN, Texas — “You have to be the best you can be in the moment and try to win, and if you (win) then you put yourself in a better position,” Texas men’s basketball head coach Shaka Smart said Saturday. “If not, you need to win the next game. That’s where we are right now. Obviously in this league, you get a lot of really good opportunities, but that means it’s a really good team and you have to play at a high level.”

The Texas men’s basketball team will indeed get two great opportunties this upcoming week, as the Longhorns play Baylor at home, then travel to Iowa State, and seek to salvage their season after dropping two straight ballgames this week.
