Andrew Jones is on one tonight. He’s got 18 at halftime for Texas.
Texas Tech allows just 58.0 points per game. The Longhorns have 48 through 20 minutes.
I spoke at length with Shaka Smart earlier today about Jones and the road back. That will lead tomorrow’s Court Report.
This loss is going to sting a little bit for Shaka Smart's team. Longhorns shot 52% from the field , 58% from beyond the arc and still could not hold off the Red Raiders in a game Texas controlled for most of the evening. #HookEm
Greg Brown III with a big response after hearing it from Shaka Smart during the recent timeout. Three blocks and a three from Matt Coleman helped the stop the run by Texas Tech.
Shaka Smart now bringing as much energy as his team is bringing after a Tech turnover. From the start, this game has felt like one in which both teams know the value of each possession. It's been intense. Texas up 39-32 at the U4 timeout. #HookEm
In the first 90 seconds, Texas Tech cut the Texas lead to six, prompting a timeout by Shaka Smart, who was upset with Greg Brown III for missing a defensive rotation and giving up a basket at the rim. Horns need to respond out of the break.
Texas really blew this game lol
Dominated for essentially 34 minutes and now fading down the stretch. Same old Shaka Smart team.
Can’t win the big games👎🏼
Hot take: I still want Shaka Smart as DePaul's next head coach.
It's 59-52 at the U12 timeout with free throws pending for Texas once again. Only 13-of-22 shooting at the line tonight for the Horns, but Shaka Smart's team has responded well when the Red Raiders have cut into the lead. So important to make Tech spend energy just staying close.
I remember people were talking about firing Shaka Smart not long ago.. now this man has Texas as a top 5 team.
Love it! Haha! That was amazing. Great team win. They showed such heart.
Chris Beard > Shaka Smart 😬
Shaka Smart once sat next to me at the NCAA Tournament in Portland and asked me how @JordanHulls1
was at point guard. This was pretty much my peak.
I feel like it would be very easy to shove Shaka Smart in a locker
A very quick Shaka Smart timeout as Tech opens on a 4-0 run.
TTU 42, UT 48. 18:30 to go.
Tech opens the second half on a 4–0 run and Shaka Smart quickly calls timeout. Texas' 10-point lead has been cut to six.
Shaka smart getting a contract extension?
Shaka Smart and those Longhorns are going to make some noise come March.
Shaka Smart just looks like the intern comedic relief in every romantic comedy
I love Shaka Smart. Always have. And he collects motivational/inspirational quotes...@TexasLonghorns
I just can’t get over Shaka Smart with hair.

Shaka Smart is not a good coach
