AUSTIN, Texas — “Your preparation in practice builds your confidence,” Texas women’s basketball head coach Karen Aston said. “You don’t just walk on to the court on gameday and become a confident player or team. You have to build that in practice and I do feel like we’re doing a better job [with that]. We’ve kind of reset ourselves since the loss [to TCU].”

The Longhorns stumbled in their first Big 12 game, a 65-63 loss to TCU, but rebounded with a victory at Iowa State before gettng knocked off Sunday by West Virginia, 66-63, in a game that came down to the final seconds. Now 1-2 in conference play, the Horns are hoping the odds will turn in their favor this week, especially in the close games that occur so often in conference play.
