We cashed earlier this week on the Kansas State moneyline in a game at Texas. The Longhorns lost a late lead but the game was going back and forth all night.
The issue with UT was its offense, once again. Only scoring 64 points on Kansas State is weak and the ‘Horns were way too three-point happy, hoisting 29 and missing 21.
The problem is this team just doesn’t have a go-to scorer, nor much of a team identity. It’s defense is its best offense but Kansas State was committing bad turnovers or missing lots of long shot — it took only 17 three’s and missed 11.
You’re going to have two schools of thought when it comes time to analyzing this team in March Madness. The defense is tremendous but the offense is one that can really run cold for minutes at a time.
So how will this team score? I think it’s best possible matchup is a against a team that gives up easy baskets when it isn’t playing well. Texas can disrupt it and find a way to score enough to advance.
TCU Horned Frogs
For what it’s worth, I don’t identify TCU as one of those teams. The Horned Frogs are skilled and disciplined, with lethal outside shooters that will devalue Mo Bamba in the paint.
The Horned Frogs have lost their last two Big-12 games, both to a team that was ranked #10 at the time of the game. They dropped a home game to Texas Tech and lost in Kansas by seven.
Nearly 20 assists per game is good enough for second in the entire country. TCU is an offensively refined team and I think it is going to give Texas’ aggressive perimeter defense some trouble with the outside shot and the quick dribble pull-up, rather than taking it all the way to the hole.
