Social media reacts to Texas’ 81-61 win over Colgate

Texas took care of Colgate behind the hot shooting of Sir’Jabari Rice and Marcus Carr. The Longhorns are off to the second round of the NCAA Tournament with an 81-61 victory.

Rodney Terry ensured his team did not take the No. 15 seed lightly. With a couple of major upsets going down earlier in the day, Texas delivered an inspired performance to stay off the disappointment list.

The Longhorns forced Coglate to go away from its three-point shooting identity with excellent perimeter defense. Texas’ game plan worked like a charm as they held the Raiders to a season-low 3-15 from beyond the arc.

Texas broke the game open early on as Rice nailed his first five three-point shots. The Longhorns built a 17-point first-half lead, but Colgate managed to cut it to single digits late. However, clutch buckets from Carr and Dylan Disu put the game away down the stretch.

Texas fans are excited about the first round win for the Horns. Here are some of social media’s best reactions to the dominant performance over Colgate.
