The Longhorn women’s tennis team knows it needs dramatic improvement after last weekend’s tournament at Furman University. Texas left South Carolina on the final day of the Debbie Southern Fall Classic on Sunday with just three victories compared to eight losses. Texas also recorded a pair of doubles wins Friday and earned five victories Saturday the first two days of the tournament.
Entering the fourth episode of his tenure as Texas’ head basketball coach, one number has defined Shaka Smart thus far: zero. That’s how many NCAA tournament wins the Longhorns have collected since Smart’s arrival in Austin, and it’s the most significant reason many people believe the Longhorns’ head coach enters a make-or-break fourth season.
The Longhorns jumped to No. 18 in this week’s AP Top 25 rankings, but next Saturday, Texas head coach Tom Herman will be faced with a task that the program hasn’t achieved since 2002 against Kansas State.
Through three weeks, we've seen Oklahoma and Oklahoma State dominate their respective matchups, but a variety of matchups with high implications take place this weekend, leaving some of the top spots potentially up for grabs.
