No. 25 Texas travels to Cincinnati for second Big 12 game of the year

The Longhorns suffered a significant loss on Saturday against Texas Tech. However, Texas has a chance to recover on Tuesday. The game against the Red Raiders marked only the second time Texas lost at home in the Moody Center, with a final score of 78-67 in the Big 12 opener.

Texas will now travel to Cincinnati to get back on the right track, playing the Bearcats for the first time in conference play. Cincinnati, although not ranked, has won four of their last five games and is 12-2 on the season.

The Bearcats have three players averaging over 10 points per game: Vicktor Lakhin, Dan Skillings, and Day Day Thomas. Lakhin also averages 8.4 rebounds per game and shoots 53.7% from the field.

Texas will need to forget about Saturday’s loss and focus on the long road ahead, especially while playing in the best basketball conference in the country.
