Texas pulled out a huge 76-63 win over its arch-rival Oklahoma today. The victory pushed the Longhorns to 19-10 on the season and strengthened the team’s case for a high seed in this year’s NCAA Tournament.
Legendary former Texas football coach Mack Brown may be an analyst for ESPN nowadays, but it appears he hasn’t fully removed himself from the Red River Rivalry. After today’s game, UT hoops coach Shaka Smart said he received a very blunt text from Brown this morning, offering encouragement and dissing the Sooners.
Get this: Shaka Smart said that at 7:55 a.m. this morning he received a text from Mack Brown that said, ” OU still sucks.” #HookEm
