When you take one look at the Longhorns and the Jayhawks, this really looks like it should be a mismatch. Texas hasn’t won a game on the road this whole season, and it is playing against a team that has now won 34 of its last 35 games here in the Phog. However, this isn’t the same Longhorns team that started at 10-13 at the outset of the campaign. They pulled off the upset of the Iowa State Cyclones in Austin earlier this week, and they now have arguably their best player back in the lineup. G Myck Kabongo has been ineligible all season long, and he has clearly come back ready to go. He is obviously in shape, as he played 35 minutes in that game, though this is going to be his first road trip with the team this year. The problem Texas has in this game is that it just doesn’t have the bigs to be able to keep up with C Jeff Withey. Withey is one of the best pure rebounders and shot blockers in the land, and he is the difference maker in this defense. If Kabongo and G Sheldon McClellan are hitting shots from the outside though, this could be a remarkable game for the Longhorns. We don’t think that UT is quite going to be able to pull off the upset, but we do think that this game is going to end up being a heck of a lot closer than the college basketball point spreads are going to suggest.
