Statistically, Texas leads in nearly every category. Most importantly could be rebounding. Texas has dominated weaker teams on the glass with a combination of tucker, aldridge, and buckman. Penn does take the advantage is turnovers forced, and against the texas guards, that can be huge. Gibson has shown that he isnt great at protecting the ball and if penn can force him into handling the ball more than paulino, they could pressure him on defense into turning it over. putting the ball in gibson's hands is also a sure way to make sure that aldridge doesnt get too many touches. Do expect tucker to get plenty of touches as his assertiveness and competitiveness will almost undoubtedly lead to him having another huge game. If this team wants to make it deep into the tournament, they are gonna need to learn how to use aldridge and tucker's dominance inside together.




Should be a fairly easy win the Texas, although with the success the lower seeds have had in the tournament, im definitely not letting my guard down.

Texas playing great defense so far. deflections, steals, a block by gibson.

Aldridge drew first blood on a little hook from the side of the lane. Missed another but rebounded by tucker and fouled. about to shoot 2.


0-2 texas after 4:30

aldridge with 6 of the first 7 texas points. 2 hook shots and a jumper. other point was a FT by tucker.


texas is doing a great job of making penn work for their shots, taking them deep into the shot clock.


abrams with the airball earlier. paulino reenters the game for gibson

looks like if we are gonna win this, it will be because of aldridges dominance. tucker just got blocked from behind.




for once, your perimeter player dont wanna shoot for some reason. buckman hits our first 3.


tied 16-16 after 12 minutes

Very low scoring game, but entertaining nonetheless. Aldridge has shown why he's going to be a top pick in the draft. I don't see anything from the rest of the Longhorns though, I thought Daniel Gibson was NBA caliber, I thought wrong (well, for this game at least). :sad:

tucker can be, but his size is a limitation. buckman will have a solid career, but not star material. tons of team would love to have a guy to bang for rebounds and block shots. plus he is a legit scoring threat in his own right.



tucker with the nice lay up after a travel earlier. williams with the put back. but we really need to cover the 3 pt line. 22-22 after tucker with the floater. 37 secs remaining the half. texas avoids their lowest scoring half of the season.

From what I've seen, Tucker can be a tweaked Bonzi Wells at best. God knows how that'll go.

You think Penn's gonna cool down from 3 soon?

i surely hope so. penn has yet to do any damage from inside so id like to see the guards stay at home on the perimeter and make than show they can score against against our front court before we start giving open 3s.
