Longhorns to the National Invitational Tournament

Longhorns to the National Invitational Tournament

By The Horn Contributer Max Playle

Who would have thought that after a tough season that the Texas Longhorns Men’s Basketball team would land a number 2 spot in the tournament? I mean sure, the Horns went 16-16, we lost key starters like Kerwin Roach and Jaxson Hayes for multiple games, but the Longhorns prevailed and earned themselves the 2nd seed going into this weeks tournament.

No, I’m not talking about that illustrious NCAA Tournament, I’m talking about the National Invitational Tournament. The NIT sounds arguably way better, right? Would you rather be a part of the madness in March that puts 68 teams through the ringer? Or, Would you rather be part of a highly selective tournament that you need to be invited to?

Also, keep in mind that Texas won the Tournament in 1978!  So, Let’s Go, Let’s keep that Spirit of ’78 alive in 2019!

Listen to the action tomorrow on 104.9 The Horn and KOKEFM 98.5/99.3 as the Longhorns face the South Dakota State Jackrabbits. Pregame starts at 7:30PM with an 8PM tip-off.
