The great state of Texas has already lost one NCAA Tournament team — we miss you already, Lamar — but the Lone Star State's flagship school is in action on Friday when the Texas Longhorns take on the Cincinnati Bearcats in an East Region clash.
Texas has J'Covan Brown and an impressive bunch of rebounders, especially on the offensive glass, thanks to Clint Chapman and Alexis Wangmene, while Cincinnati counters with disciplined defense and balanced scoring, with Sean Kilpatrick, Dion Dixon, and Cashmere Wright heading up a guard-oriented attack.
Game date/time: Friday, March 16, 11:15 a.m. CT
Location: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, Tenn.
Radio: Longhorns Radio Network
Line: Texas (+2.5)
