January 29, 2024


Game Preview


The Texas Longhorns (14-6) will be the opponent to the Houston Cougars (18-2) on January 29 at Moody Center.


The Red Raiders have a 5-1 league record, and the Houston Cougars are only a half game behind Texas Tech in the Big 12. Houston and Iowa State share a 5-2 record between them. Houston has won its last 4 league games and is continuing to hold a strong lead in the rankings. In the process, they defeated UCF, BYU, and Kansas State in addition to handing Texas Tech their lone league loss. Jamal Shead scored 17 points to lead the Cougars in their most recent victory over Kansas State, defeating the Wildcats. Three quick guards dominate Houston’s perimeter offense, with 6’1 senior L.J. Cryer scoring 15.2 points per game as the team’s top scorer. With 60 made 3 this season, he leads the team in shooting percentage (38.7%) and is the team’s best shooter. Cryer scored 23 points versus BYU the night before, but he was largely quiet versus K-State, concluding with just 7 points on 3-13 shooting.



The Big 12, perhaps the toughest conference in the country, is where the Texas Longhorns play despite having a talented roster. 9 teams from the Big 12 are expected to make it into the NCAA Tournament, which is 2 more than any other conference. In league play, Texas has had ups and downs. They have defeated unranked teams like West Virginia and UCF, but they have also had impressive victories over #9 Baylor and #11 Oklahoma. Dylan Disu commanded Texas with 19 points in their most recent game, a defeat to BYU. Texas is presently 11th in the Big 12 with a 3-4 league record. They are scoring 76.8 points per contest on 48.2% shooting and giving up 67.9 points per match.
