Welcome back, Tucker
We all know football season is right around the corner: for those of you who need the visual reinforcement, we've even got a countdown at the top of this page. But today, Texas received excellent news regarding this year’s basketball squad. P.J. Tucker is now eligible. For those of you who don’t remember, Tucker was declared academically ineligible for the spring semester last season. Tucker’s absence, coupled with an injured LaMarcus Aldridge, caused the Horns to skid into March and exit the tourney in the first round. I’ve said this before: Texas is a Final Four team with Tucker, Aldridge, Gibson, and Buckman.
