5. Can the Horns take care of the basketball?

Coach Terry and his staff preach the importance of taking care of the basketball. They set a goal of finishing every game with ten turnovers or less. Can Texas get that done on Monday night?

Expect first-year Incarnate Word head coach Shane Heirman to try to speed up the Texas guards with simulated backcourt pressure. He knows if he wants to hang in this game, the Cardinals will need to be aggressive.

On the Texas side, yes, Incarnate Word has some athletic and versatile players, but this is likely the worst team they will play all season. It is a game where you must keep the ball clean and prove you can execute your offense. If they struggle with turnovers on Mondy night, Coach Terry might have a larger issue on his hands.
