Inconsistency continues to plague the Texas Longhorns leading into a Saturday afternoon home game against Oklahoma State.
When the Longhorns tip off against the Cowboys at noon, the Longhorns will try to gain some traction after having lost seven of their last 11.
Their latest stumble?
Well, let’s just say the Kansas State Wildcats thoroughly enjoyed themselves Tuesday night in downing the ‘Horns 71-64 in Austin.
Big 12-leading Kansas State shot 54.9 percent from the floor and held Texas to 25 points in the second half.
Maddening stuff for Longhorns fans after watching their team chalk up non-conference victories over Arkansas, North Carolina and Purdue in November and December.
On the strength of its non-conference schedule and some solid efforts during that stretch, forecasters still believe Texas is an NCAA Tournament team.
But how many more times can it afford to score 61 points at home and still be regarded as worthy of an NCAA at-large bid?
Kansas State 19-5, 9-2
Texas 14-11 6-6
