The Longhorns’ slow start proved too much to overcome as they dropped their first game of the season 66-61. The Texas women’s basketball team shot 18.8% from the field and turned the ball over five times in the first quarter of their game against No. 12 Texas A&M Sunday night.
It seemed like the Longhorns were bound for another clutch finish. With two and a half minutes left in their game against Villanova on Sunday, junior guard Courtney Ramey buried a 3-pointer to even the score at 57 and bring the Frank Erwin Center to its feet.
The “Texas standard” — once hailed as Big 12 and college football’s cream of the crop — has been difficult to define this decade. Defining the standard is impossible when there isn’t a expectation the program will accept.
