The Texas Longhorns (6-3) will host the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs (7-3) at 1:00 PM CST on Saturday at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin. The teams have met previously three times, with the last meeting taking place on November 10, 2010 in Austin. Texas is 3-0 all-time vs. Louisiana Tech.
The Longhorns fell to Michigan 59-52 on Tuesday, suffering from poor shooting, turnovers and missed free-throws. Texas will face the bulldogs without their leading scorer Andrew Jones, who continues to rehab a wrist fracture. Tulane transfer Dylan Osetkowski is averaging 17.7 point per game, while freshman Mo Bamba is averaging 10 rebounds per game and 4 blocks per game, which leads the Big 12 and ranks 3rd nationally. Junior guard Kerwin Roach is averaging 11.1 points per game and ranks third on the team in scoring.
Louisiana Tech lost on Tuesday evening at home to Louisiana-Lafayette 75-71. Sophmore guard and Texas native Jalen Harris leads the Bulldogs in scoring, averaging 16.4 points per game. Complimenting Harris is DaQuan Bracey, also a sophmore, averaging 14.3 points per game. Rounding out the trio of guard play for head coach Eric Konkol’s team is Jacobi Boykin, who averages 14 points per contest.
The Bulldogs are a talented team that can compete with most teams on any given day. With the Longhorns’ recent shooting struggles and playing without Andrew Jones, Texas must play smart basketball to avoid a potential upset.
The game will begin at 1:00 PM and will be televised on Longhorn Network.
