The Longhorns’ trip to Hawaii for the Rainbow Wahine Showdown ended with a loss to the host team, as the Hawaii Rainbow Wahine handed Texas its second defeat of their three games in Honolulu with a 73-60 victory in front of the home crowd at the Stan Sheriff Center.
One year ago today, the Longhorns were upset at home against Radford in one of the more disappointing games of the season. On Saturday, Texas almost suffered a similarly shocking upset to the McNeese State Cowboys.
Between the grade school kids singing the national anthem before tipoff and the early 11 a.m. slot, the tone of Texas’ matchup against UT-Rio Grande Valley felt different than most other games the Longhorns compete in.
Following Texas’ blowout loss to Arizona on Sunday, the Longhorns left the Frank Erwin Center in a state of confusion about what went wrong and how they could fix their issues moving forward. The Longhorns will try to answer the questions surrounding their play when they match up against UTRGV at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
In basketball, teams either live by the three or they die by the three. Bloodshed was absent in Texas’ physical Sunday matchup against Arizona, but the Longhorns were still destroyed by the Wildcats’ aggressive shooting attack early on.
