Former Longhorn Kevin Durant was selected to his seventh consecutive NBA All-Star Game on Thursday. Getting selected to this event has become a recurring tradition for the Oklahoma City Thunder star since the end of his second season in the NBA.
The Longhorns had No. 3 Kansas right where they wanted it — Texas started off hot, sank eight of its first 12 shots and took a 35-30 lead into the half. But a second-half run pushed the Jayhawks past the Longhorns, 76-67.
