Aldridge to have surgery
Freshman center Lamarcus Aldridge is officially out for the remainder of the season and will have surgery to repair torn cartilage in his hip. This isn’t terribly surprising and is just another bit of bad news in what has been a disappointing (to say the least) three weeks for the Horns. Texas will try to right its ship on Saturday in Austin when they host Kansas State (13-7, 3-6). This is a must-win for Texas and a chance to get some momentum going for the homestretch. A loss would be devastating for the Horns tournament hopes.
