Another Texas Team Advances

First UTSA, now the Longhorns.  Can the #7 Aggies get past #10 Florida State?  We'll find out later today.   

Tristan Thompson controlled his head-to-head matchup with Summit League Player of the Year Keith Benson while getting plenty of help from front court partner Jordan Hamilton, who finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds in an impressive one-two punch as the Longhorns survived a second-half comeback by high-scoring Oakland for an 85-81 victory.  

The No. 4 seed Longhorns (28-7) led by 15 with less than 5 minutes remaining, but the Golden Grizzlies cut the lead to 80-75 with 1:23 left. Texas then hit five free throws in the final minute to advance into a third-round matchup with Memphis or Arizona in the West Regional.  

The Longhorns took care of business after another Texas team, #16-(T) UTSA, defeated #16-(T) Alabama.  

The Roadrunners move on to play #1 Ohio State this afternoon.  Good luck to all our Texas Teams.
