After a week off after their conference opener the Red Raiders had the difficulty of taking on Texas at the United Spirit Arena on Saturday. By the final buzzer they dropped to 0-2 in the Big 12, 71-49. The Red Raiders were down by only 6 going to the locker room for halftime, that's when the bottom fell out from under them as they were outscored 37-18 in the first 15 minutes of the second half.
To compound the matter the Red Raiders shot only 34 percent from the field, 10 points lower than the 11th ranked Longhorns. To tip the scales, after the game Coach Pat Knight finally let go of something that he believes can help the Red Raiders win, but ultimately is out of his control.
