DJ Augustin

Kevin Durant and the Texas Longhorns had a rough day today against the Villanova Wildcats. With their lowest scoring first half of the season (only 23 points!), Texas just looked sluggish and was probably still a little tired from the triple over-time game against Oklahoma State.

Things weren’t much better in the second half as Kevin Durant only managed to score 1 point. And it wasn’t like he was having a totally off shooting night, it was more that he couldn’t get the ball. Maybe he just didn’t have the energy, or maybe ‘Nova’s defense was just too good, but Durant never realy had a chance to put the ball in the basket.

D.J. Augustin on the other hand looked very impressive, scoring 25 points. He seems to be able to get to the basket whenever he feels like it and is showing some good range. Now all we need to do is get him synced up with Durant and we should be good to go.

The Horns have 4 days rest until they play at Nebraska, and hopefully they will take this time to get some rest. Nebraska has started off slow in Big 12 conference play and may be just what the Longhorns need to get back on track.
