With 7:54 left in the second half, Amath M’Baye threw down an alley-oop from Sam Grooms to put the Oklahoma Sooners up 67-45. After the dunk, M’Baye threw the horns down adding insult to injury. From that point, the Texas Longhorns outscored the Sooners 47-19 to erase a 22 point deficit to beat Oklahoma 92-86 at the Frank Irwin Center in Austin, Texas.

While this Longhorns basketball team might not make any postseason tournament, this team fights to get back into basketball games. The Longhorns decided to put on the full court press to force Oklahoma into making mistakes. It worked. But with 6.9 seconds to go in the game, the Longhorns were down 2 when this happened:

The Longhorns outscored the Sooners 15-9 in overtime. During this run, the shots were just falling all over the court. Myck Kabongo had a career high 31 points and Sheldon McClellan was perfect 13-13 from the line to add to his 18 points. The Longhorns went 7-for-9 from the field in the second half after M’Baye did the horns down. This was clearly a huge win for the confidence of the Texas Longhorns. Here are some reaction from Twitter.


 



 


The Longhorns got another big win at home that could be something they should build on for next season. Now Rick Barnes biggest offseason job is to convince Myck Kabongo to come back for his junior year.
