This is the first time Texas and Delaware State meet on the hardwood in the history of the two men’s basketball programs. It is also the first time since the 2015-16 season that Delaware State has faced a Big 12 foe when the Hornets fell short to the TCU Horned Frogs in Fort Worth.
Texas basketball vs. Delaware State: Prediction and odds for Nov. 10
Texas opens the regular season with two games where it is at least a 30-point favorite at home. The Longhorns are a sizable 31.5-point favorite against Delaware State on Nov. 10, and the over/under is 144.5 points (per Caesars Sportsbook).
Delaware State is a team chocked full of upperclassmen in the core rotation. Junior guard Corey Perkins and senior forward Martaz Robinson lead a group of Hornets starters who are all at least sophomores (four of the five are juniors or older). They also have over 300 games played and over 100 starts combined.
But the Hornets have struggled mightily to find success in the win column in the last few seasons. Head coach Stan Waterman is in the third year of building this Delaware State program that has won eight games combined in the previous two seasons.
Texas has a major size, depth, and athleticism advantage on both ends of the floor. The Texas frontcourt should overwhelm a smaller group of Delaware State bigs. And Terry and the Longhorns should have another big game with transition scoring after they beat UIW in fastbreak scoring 29-0 in the opener on Nov. 6.
