Burnt Orange Nation: Longhorns Bounce Back in Victory Over Red Raiders

The No. 6 Texas Longhorns (18-2, 4-1) bounced back from two straight losses with a 95-83 win over Texas Tech in Austin. Though, as Burnt Orange Nation points out, the game was closer than the final score indicates.

The Texas offense was led by an unexpected source, Justin Mason. Mason (18 points, four rebounds, five assists) was uncharacteristically aggressive on offense as he attacked the lane and repeatedly finished in traffic. Justin even sank a rare three-pointer. Damion James and Dogus Balbay also had strong offensive performances in the first half.

It was the Texas defense that needed fixing to secure a conference victory.
