The Longhorns got the tournament on the back of their lockdown defense, a Chris Beard speciality. We’ll see if this guard rotation can muster some offense, which will be needed against a red-hot Virginia Tech team.
The Hokies join the field after winning the ACC conference tournament, beating Duke in the final. Virginia Tech is one of the top three-point shooting teams in the country and can create problems for Texas’ defense if it gets open looks consistently.
Texas is a 1-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. The point total sits at 123.5.
