Instant Analysis

From a matchup perspective, the Longhorns are more than capable of closing out on Colgate’s shooters. Just 28 percent of the points they allowed this season came from beyond the arc, which is one of the better marks in the nation.

On the other end of the court, Texas should get whatever it wants inside against the Raiders as veteran big man Timmy Allen will be healthy for this opening round matchup.
