The Texas Longhorns have completed a three-game sweep of their Red River rivals, beating Oklahoma 74-54. Jordan Hamilton was exceptional, contributing 22 points and 10 rebounds in the winning effort. Tristan Thompson also kicked in a double-double, and J'Covan Brown scored in double digits for the Horns.
For their troubles, Texas will get the winner of Thursday night's game between Texas A&M and Missouri. The Longhorns are 3-0 against this duo, having rocked A&M both in Austin and College Station and jolted Mizzou at home. So, you know, whatever.
Is the Big 12 Tournament setting up as a collision course between Texas and Kansas? Though the Jayhawks barely escaped Oklahoma State today, conference higher-ups would certainly be pleased with that matchup.
For more on this game, Texas fans should celebrate at Burnt Orange Nation and SB Nation Dallas. Oklahoma fans should regroup at Crimson And Cream Machine.
