The No. 2 seeded Texas Longhorns have a strong chance to make the Final Four. That is, if CBS hoops analysts Seth Davis and Jay Wright are to be believed. Both Davis and Wright see Texas reaching the national semifinal for the first time since 2003.
Both college basketball experts shared a Final Four that included Alabama, Marquette, Texas and Kansas.
Davis said the following about Texas going up against No. 1 seeded Houston.
First of all, Houston has the Sasser injury. But Houston likes to out-physical teams. Texas can play that way. I think that’s a comfortable matchup. I’ll take the Longhorns.
Jay Wright followed Davis’ bracket stating that he had Texas winning the Midwest Region. Wright is familiar with what it takes to reach the Final Four after guiding Villanova to national title victories in 2016 and 2018.
The hype is there for Texas head coach Rodney Terry and company. The biggest hurdle will be getting past a daunting first weekend. Should the Longhorns emerge from their bracket with Texas A&M, Penn State and Colgate they could be in store for a memorable March.
