Texas vs Colorado Preview

Texas travels to Colorado to try to right their quickly sinking ship, but must do so with only six scholarship players. Injuries and truancy have taken four of the Horns top ten players: P.J. Tucker, Lamarcus Aldridge, and recently injured Kenton Paulino and Sydmill Harris.

Texas is trying to rebound from a blowout loss at Kansas and a disappointing giveaway at home against Iowa State. Another loss would be crushing for the Horns and severely dampen their tournament outlook. Just a few weeks ago, Texas was a top ten team looking to earn a 3 or 4 seed. Following the home loss to Iowa State, Texas has dropped down to a 7 or 8 seed and could play itself right out of the tournament if it can’t take care of business against non-tournament teams.

I haven’t seen Colorado play much this year, but I have seen Texas struggle on the road, so I don’t expect this to be an easy game. But something tells me that we’re going to play like a team playing for its life and win the game. I’ll predict an ugly affair, with Texas coming out on top, 70-68.
