What you need to know about Texas

The Longhorns are coming off a tough 86-67 loss to the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday. Texas went down 20 points in the first half and couldn't dig itself out of that hole as it endured its eighth loss in the last 14 games to put itself firmly on the 2024 NCAA Tournament bubble.

Tyrese Hunter and Dillon Mitchell led Texas with 12 points each in the defeat and Ithiel Horton had 10 points off the bench. However, the Longhorns were outrebounded 31-22 and allowed the Jayhawks to shoot a staggering 61.5% from the floor. Jerry Palm currently has Texas listed as one of the first four teams out in his 2024 NCAA Tournament predictions.

What you need to know about Texas Tech

Meanwhile, the Red Raiders came up short against the UCF Knights on Saturday and fell 75-61. Despite the loss, Darrion Williams dropped a double-double on 19 points and 11 rebounds while Kerwin Walton scored 18 points. However, Texas Tech lost the turnover battle 14-7 and shot an abysmal 37% from the floor as a team.

The loss was Texas Tech's fifth in its last eight games but Palm still has the Red Raiders listed as a No. 6 seed in the South region in his latest bracketology update. Grant McCasland's first year at the helm as a program has already been a rousing success following a disappointing 16-16 season in 2022-23 after beginning the season as a top-25 team.
