Texas Vs. Cincinnati Halftime Update: Bearcats Lead Longhorns, 31-17 At Halftime

The Texas Longhorns were held to a season low for points in one half and trail the Cincinnati Bearcats 31-17 at halftime in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Texas never could find its rhythm and struggled even while the Bearcats did not have their strongest offensive half. Nonetheless, Cincinnati jumped out to a 20-6 lead early on the Longhorns, burying them into a huge deficit to start the game.

The Longhorns are shooting 17 percent from the field at halftime, while being led by their J'Covan Brown, their leading scorer all season, who has nine points. Clint Chapman has 8 rebounds for Texas.

The Bearcats are led by Yancy Gates who went into halftime with 8 points and 6 rebounds, on pace to record a double-double if he keeps up the pace in the second half.

Something is going to have change for the Horns, or they will be an early exit team, for sure.
