Kevin Durant

Last night [tag]Kevin Durant[/tag] set yet another record at Texas with his 14th double-double of the season. The previous mark was held by Ron Baxter, who had 13 in 1976-77.

Durant actually start off a little slow, with only 12 points in the first half, but he made up for it scoring 12 points in the first few minutes of the second half. Unfortunately though, Durant’s performance was not enough, as the Longhorns struggled to play anything that resembled defense. And missing those crucial front-ends of 1-1s towards the end of the game was killer.

Texas has a long way to go if they want to make a serious run in the NCAA tournament. The good news is that I think they have a shot, since they have been showing signs of improvement throughout the season.

    Durant is the game. Even afterwards the focus of the talk was about Durant. He is that good.

    Seems to be a lot of shit talking for a team that was 0-16 in the Big 12 a few years ago.

    Durant is fantastic, and he was the focus. He’s fun to watch. It’s a little premature to be all over Texas about losing at Reed. This is the 3rd straight year that has happened. A&M was expected to win. If A&M wins in Austin (picked or not), that would be something different.

    I’m not sure how going 0-16 a few years ago has anything to do with the current team.

    I was just commenting on the fact that it is so easy to forgot just how bad the A&M team was a few years ago, and that you shouldn’t talk shit over one win.
