Horns top Red Raiders to snap 7-game skid
Big 12 Tournament win late Wednesday was UT’s first on road.
For a brief moment Wednesday, literally a flash, Texas fans finally saw what they’ve been clamoring to see for two years. Havoc. Texas guard Andrew Jones knocked the ball away from Texas Tech’s Devon Thomas. Then UT senior Kendal Yancy dove for it headfirst into a scrum. Somehow Jones wound up with the ball while tiptoeing the sideline and saw Kerwin Roach Jr. sprinting the other way. Jones whipped the ball to Roach, who got fouled intentionally.
According to the official stats, it was all over within two seconds. But it was an uplifting moment in a season that’s gone horribly wrong and one that ignited a 61-52
