Golden: Well, Texas elite or not? Horns still looking for that signature Big 12 victory

  • Texas got off to a good start but fell one behind at halftime before a late drought led to defeat.
  • Kansas, Kansas State and Iowa State are 5-1 tied for first place in the Big 12. The Wildcats beat the Jayhawks in overtime Tuesday.
  • The Horns fell to 15-3 overall and 4-2 in conference play. They visit last-placed West Virginia on Saturday before returning home to play Oklahoma State on January 24th.

Texas had some good wins to kick off the conference, but we’re still waiting for that Big 12 signature moment.

It didn’t happen Tuesday night in Iowa.

The team that wins the Big 12 will have two or three signature wins that will set them apart from the crowd. The best college basketball conference will provide very few opportunities to win a road win or two, but when the opportunity arises, this team should take it.

Just keeping the pitch at home – and the Horns had some good comebacks last week against TCU and Texas Tech – won’t be enough to win this league.

Texas had a chance at Ames but didn’t kick the door open when it opened.

A pair of offensive misses—one in each half—proved fatal in Texas’ 78-67 loss as the Longhorns squandered a chance at the top spot in the conference.
