The Texas Longhorns are not playing their best basketball right now, and they will return home on Saturday, February 13th to take on the TCU Horned Frogs, who have won two straight.

Texas (12-5, 6-4 Big 12) has seen three games postponed or canceled since the middle of January, which may have thrown the Longhorns off a bit. Texas snapped a three-game losing streak earlier this week when the Longhorns won by three points against the Kansas State Wildcats, which have lost 11 straight games. Andrew Jones scored 24 points as the Longhorns avoided an upset as 14-point favorites.

TCU (11-7, 4-5 Big 12) lost five straight games in January with three COVID-19 postponements in the middle. The Horned Frogs played two of their three scheduled games so far in February and are coming off a 79-76 road win over the Iowa State Cyclones, which haven’t won a Big 12 game this season. RJ Nembhard shot 4-of-16 from the floor but finished with 20 points with seven assists and six rebounds.
