At the 12:19 mark we have our 1st whistle in bout 7 mins. We’ll take the 16 min TO. Both teams, particularly the big men, are dead tired.

Two bad turnovers by Jai Lucas. Can’t afford to have those from your PG. #UT

Make that 3 turnovers in a row for Jai Lucas. He might not see the floor again today.

Brian: 

Other than James and Gary Johnson, the other forwards for this team are awful on offense. Wangmene has missed several from point blank in a row.

NFL Network just use Chris Johnson to prove Dexter McCluser size point. Johnson is 3 inches taller, 40 lbs heavier than McCluster. #NFL

Jordan Hamilton (2 mins, 0-3 FGs, 1 to) and Jai Lucas (2 mins, 3 tos) epitomized the #UT first half. This team is deep, but deep in what?

Horns with just a bit of momentum here 6 minutes into 2nd half. #UT has cut lead to 7.

Damion James 2nd chance on his 17th rebound gives the Horns their first lead since early. #UT up over baylor 57-56

Whoa. On replay Baylor’s Dunn sure looked like he did that on purpose. Looks Brown right in the eye and then elbows him direct in face. #ut

WTF was Balbay doing? No rush and ignored several open players on that inbounds play. #ut

With Dunn out for Baylor, that let’s Bradley & Balbay take turns working on Tweety Carter. #ut

If Bradley is the only one who will attempt an outside shot, give Jordan Hamilton a chance. Hamilton can guard Anthony Johnson. #ut #horns

Then coach him not to. RT @pat_daniel: @chipbrownob the problem with hamilton is he’s a black hole. he shoots everytime he gets the ball

ChipBrownOB: 

That’s why J’Covan Brown has to be on the floor at least 20-25 mins per game. The guy’s a baller. #ut #horns

Big free throws from Damion James. Here comes Texas’ defensive lineup, minus D.Balbay, who has fouled out. UT up 63-62 with 32 secs left.

This is why you miss Jordan Hamilton right now. The guy wants the shot. Only J’Covan Brown right now wants the shot. #ut #horns

Anyone think Rick Barnes, the coach who refuses to talk about offense, can go Zen and get guys to make FTs? Didn’t think so. #ut #horns
