Texas vs Colorado Preview

The Horns open up the Big 12 tournament tonight against Colorado at approximately 8:20 p.m. The Buffaloes beat Texas in Boulder just a month ago, capping a three game losing streak that had the Horns reeling.

But Texas has improved as a team since that stretch, learning to win games without Lamarcus Aldridge or P.J. Tucker. The Horns won five of their final seven regular season games, as Brad Buckman suddenly became Corliss Williamson and provided the big time scoring that Texas so desperately needed.

Right now, Texas is probably sitting in the dreaded #8 or #9 seed. A loss to Colorado would probably bump us down to a #10 seed, a strong win and a solid showing against Oklahoma State could move us up to a #7, and any kind of deep run into the Big 12 tournament could get us as high as #5 or #6.

I haven't had much success predicting wins, and we beat Oklahoma State when I predicted a loss, so I'll suggest that Texas comes out sluggish, fails to get an offensive rhythm going, and falls to the Buffalos, 69-65.
