2017 Longhorns Season Preview
The 2015-2016 season for the Texas Longhorns basketball team was Shaka Smart’s debut season as head coach for the Horns. They finished the season with a 23-10 record and a loss in the first round of the NCAA tournament. For a season of changes with a new coaching style, this was a successful season for the Longhorns and resulted in Smart signing a new contract that gives him an additional $100,000 per season through 2023. As the Texas Longhorns head into the 2016-2017 season, they have gone from a stacked upperclassman team to a team heavy with freshman and sophomore players. The Horns best player last season, Isaiah Thomas, left UT a year early for the NBA draft, leaving three upperclassmen on the team: Shaquille Cleare, Mareik Isom and Kendal Yancy. Smart will need to adjust his energetic coaching style to focus game minutes on the younger players. The Longhorns have a positive outlook for the season as they welcome talented freshman, Jarrett Allen and Andrew Jones. Allen was a No.1 pick for recruiting as a center with a fast and agile game style. Jones proved to be an asset last year with an average of 30 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists as a high school senior. Whether you are planning on cheering on the Longhorns at the Frank Erwin Center or supporting UT on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals on all Texas Longhorns tickets, including home and away games.

Texas vs. Oklahoma
The football rivalry between these two schools dates back a hundred years, but they have a relatively young basketball rivalry. With the inception of the Big 12 in 1996 these two teams have produced some of the best games in the conference. Oklahoma owns an advantage in overall wins, but the Longhorns have dominated the last decade. This is one of the most exciting matchups in the Big 12 year in and year out.
Texas vs. A&M
Anytime the Longhorns and Aggies meet on any stage it is an exciting event. These two teams have met on the basketball court over 200 times with the Horns owning a large margin in wins. With both teams having increased success over the last two decades, this rivalry has grown in importance and intrigue. The series was put on hold after the Aggies moved to the SEC, but fans from both squads hope that it is put back on the schedule in the near future.
This series has often been the premier matchup in the Big 12. Kansas and Texas have produced some of the most exciting games anywhere in the country, with the Big 12 championship often on the line. Kansas has a winning record in this series but Texas is one of the few schools to have any success against the Jayhawks over the last 20 years. Both squads are known for having NBA caliber talent and this game is a showcase for some of the best players in the country.
Texas Longhorns in the Final Four, NCAA Tournament, and Big 12 Tournament
After a run of two Final Fours in the 1940s, there was a lull of postseason success for the Longhorns, but over the last 15 years we’ve seen some Texas teams run deep into the NCAA tournament. Texas appeared in the Final Four in 2003, and has reached the Sweet 16 five times in the last decade – along with a few conference championships.
2015-16 Texas Longhorns Basketball Season Preview
2015-16 represents a new chapter in Texas Longhorns Basketball history. Legendary Longhorns basketball coach Rick Barnes has handed the reigns of the Horns basketball program over to rising coaching star Shaka Smart. Smart inherits a talented Longhorns roster that is highlighted by senior center Cameron Ridley and junior point guard Isaiah Taylor. Smart is known for his “havoc” defensive schemes that often utilize full court pressure, and agility to disrupt opposing offenses. The 2015-16 Longhorns basketball team will rely heavily on its upper classmen, with Javon Felix, Connor Lammert, and Prince Ibeh all expected to play big minutes. Texas will also welcome talented freshmen Tvin Mack, Eric Davis, and Kerwin Roach. The Texas Longhorns will be tested early and often on their 2015-16 schedule with non-conference games scheduled against Washington, North Carolina, and UCONN. If Texas is able to adjust to the new coaching scheme, the Longhorns should be contenders in a very packed Big 12 conference in 2015-16.
2014-15 Texas Longhorns Basketball Season Preview
The Texas Longhorns were one of the surprises of the 2013-15 college basketball season. Coming off one of their worst years in team history, a young Longhorns team rebounded to win 24 games, including a buzzer beater against Arizona State in the NCAA Tournament. From that team, Rick Barnes and company bring back stars Isaiah Taylor, Jonathan Holmes, Cameron Ridley, Damarcus Croaker, and Javan Felix, as well as 9 other returning players. The Longhorns added a stellar recruiting class and freshmen Myles Turner, Jordan Barnett, and Joe Schwartz should all see minutes for the Texas Longhorns in 2014-15. The keys for Texas this season will be similar to last season, if Cameron Ridley can dominate inside, and Isaiah Taylor continue to mature as one of the best point guards in the Big 12, the Longhorns could easily finish the season as Big 12 champions.
2013-14 Texas Longhorns Basketball Season Preview
The Longhorns are coming off one of their worst seasons in recent years, and head coach Rick Barnes is hoping to get the ship righted before it's too late. Javan Felix and Jonathan Holmes will be counted on for most of the scoring in the backcourt, while Connor Lammert and Cameron Ridley will be cleaning up what comes to them in the paint. The fans in Austin are used to competing with Kansas for the Big 12 title, but the hope for this season is a NCAA tournament berth.
Texas will travel to North Carolina on Dec. 16 for a game againts the Tar Heels before returning home to host pre-season #1 Michigan State. The three biggest conference home games at the Erwin Center will be against Oklahoma (Jan. 4), Kansas (Feb. 1) and Oklahoma State (Feb. 11).
2011-12 Texas Longhorns Basketball Season Preview
It’s never a rebuilding year for head coach Rick Barnes and his team from Austin. However, he Longhorns come in to the 2011-12 season losing all five of their starters, including NBA-bound talents Tristan Thompson, Cory Joseph and Jordan Hamilton. So while the team has to restock talent, it will be with players like McDonalds All-American point guard Myck Kabongo.
Kabongo had originally planned to go to UT before deciding to widen his search out of high school. However, he did finally decide to go down to Austin thanks to Barnes’ track record with point guards in the NBA. Whether he is a one-and-done player depends on the NBA’s new contract, but while he’s in burnt orange, he’ll be on a team with mostly new players.
One of the few players around from the previous season is Kabongo’s backcourt mate, junior shooting guard J’Covan Brown, who will start the year as a leader by default. If Kabongo and Brown form a rapport and build a strong guard tandem, and senior forward-center hybrid Alexis Wangneme and freshmen forwards Jonathan Holmes and Jaylen Bond help create an interior presence, then sky’s the limit for the Longhorns in 2011-12.
2009-2010 Texas Longhorns Basketball Season Preview
The 2009-2010 Texas Longhorns Men's Basketball team should be one of the best teams in the nation. The Horns will be competiting with the Kansas Jayhawks for the top spot in the Big 12 and for the top rank in country. UT Head Coach Rick Barnes has a mix of experienced seniors and talented freshman, who should make Texas a top contender for a spot in the NCAA Final Four. Texas seniors Damion James and Dexter Pittman have legitimate Player of the Year credentials, while freshman Avery Bradley has a shot at being the top freshman in college basketball. The Longhorns will be one of best in the Big 12 and should be a top seed in the Big 12 Tournament and NCAA Tournament.
