Cal and Oregon still on CBS. Texas game should tip off soon.

Horns and UConn tipping off now on CBS. #UT has Balbay, Mason, Bradley, James, & Pittman starting.

Pretty clear goaltend IMO. Looked like it was eitehr off the glass or on its way back down.

A little surprised to see Wangmene as first #UT big man off bench. Thought Clint Chapman might earn more minutes against KSU.

Texas playing good defense early away from the basket. Lots of UConn turnovers. #UT

Wow. Texas doesnt have anyone that can run or jump with UConn’s Stanley Robinson.

Back to back bad calls against #UT. Wangmene hit on his shot then on other side of court UConn pushed off Bradley and they called it on AB.

Brian: 

Rough layup attempt by Matt Hill. Barely left the ground and bricked wide open shot.

40acressports: 

Seriously how much body contact is UConn allowed on “blocks”? Jordan Hamilton then tackes turnover and drains 3. #UT

9 turnovers on UConn already after that offensive foul. Lazy pick attempt by #34

Dexter Pittman picks up 2nd foul on high pick attempt. He might be headed to a 3 minute first half.#UT

Brian: 

Hamilton does so many good things on offense but in his limited minutes but completely lost on defense a couple times in a row.

My biggest complaint in college hoops is ticky tack fouls called away from basket, and then complete murder allowed inside on shot. #UT

Damion James just picked up 2 quick fouls in a row. #UT might be without both him and Dex for last 5 minutes of 1st half.

There was TONS of contact when Justin Mason went up for that layup right? I’m not just imagining things? #UT

BTW, I’m also live blogging the #UT game over on the site at http://bit.ly/5Jh8XN Add #40 to your tweets to have them included.

Great to have a player like Jai Lucas available off the bench who can handle the ball and knock down the 3.

Watching TX/UCONN would be more fun if we had beaten Alabama…. still holding on to that #40

Justin Mason hits 2/2 free throws (!!!) to stretch the #UT lead over UConn to 42-34 at the end of the 1st half.

9 seconds into 2nd half Avery Bradley throws it down and UConn quickly calls a timeout. #UT

[Comment From UTbornandbredUTbornandbred: ] 

how’s everyone feeling about our chances to be Kansas? I think we’re going to roll right over them!

Saturday January 23, 2010 4:21 UTbornandbred

Brian: 

@UTbornandbred: Kansas is heck of a team and if Dexter Pittman and Damion James get in trouble like they have today I don’t know if Texas can beat top competition. The fact that the game is in Austin is huge factor.

Dogus Balbay just got called for 3 fouls in a 20 second span.

@UTbornandbred: At the moment Kentucky leads Arkansas 78-32 with just under 15:00 to play in the game.

In about 40 seconds Dogus Balbay picks up 3 quick fouls and UConn cuts 10pt #UT lead to 3.

UConn hammers Bradley on the shot. Random imaginary call against Dex Pittman is his 3rd. This game has been very poorly officiated. #UT

…. and this is why I give Rick Barnes crap. Seriously — you wait till now to call a timeout? I would like him to recruit only. #40

Damion James has been quiet this half. The senior leader has to take the team on his back, calm the troops, and demand the basketball. #UT

Awful foul on Jai Lucas way away from basket with UConn down to a couple seconds on the shot clock. #UT

Not sure which sinking ship to watch, the #UT basketball team or Titanic on TNT. Hopefully Horns recover better than Leo did.

With the way UConn shoots free throws (almost as bad as Texas) this game isn’t quite over yet. Need some 3′s and some prayers. #UT

Final score: Texas 74, UConn 88
