It is no secret Texas is one of the best in the country when it comes to playing on their home court. Gregory Gym is a tough place for opponents to play, and it shows in the home record.

A schedule for the 2020 season has not yet been announced, but road trips to Northern Iowa, Minnesota and Texas A&M have already been announced. The team is able to return to campus for workouts starting July 13.
