The next Test on the list for Texas No. 10 basketball and acting head coach Rodney Terry is Jan. 24 against the Oklahoma State Cowboys and head coach Mike Boynton. Texas will return home to the friendly confines of the Moody Center for the first time since defeating the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Jan. 14.
Terry and the Longhorns continued their comeback in their final game, which resulted in a great 69-61 win over the West Virginia Mountaineers on January 21 at Morgantown’s WVU Coliseum. Texas has now won three of their last four games with their triumph over West Virginia.
Texas is posting a record of 16-3 (5-2 Big 12) this week going into this matchup against Oklahoma State.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma State comes into this game on a high after knocking down the No. 12 Iowa State Cyclones at home at Stillwater’s Gallagher-Iba Arena on Jan. 21 with the final score of 61-59. Oklahoma State has a bit of momentum right now, having won its last two games, both played at home against Iowa State and the Oklahoma Sooners.

Texas vs. Oklahoma State preview
The first duel between these two teams this season resulted in a solid 56-46 win on the road at Stillwater for the Longhorns. It was one of the biggest road wins of the season for the Longhorns.
But Oklahoma State has been having a bit of a hot streak lately. And the Pokes are no stranger to giving Texas everything it can handle in Austin. While Texas has won the overwhelming majority of matchups against Oklahoma State on its home court over the past decade (having won six of the last seven), the last few have been a slightly different story.
Oklahoma State has played within five points against Texas the last two seasons. And three years ago, the Pokes beat Texas in Austin by more than 20 points.
Texas, however, has found a way to keep Oklahoma State’s already challenged offense (Pokes is bottom of the Big 12 this season with just over 61 points per game) even more limited than usual. If Texas can keep Oklahoma State under 50 or 55 points, I like the chances for Terry’s team to come out on top in the end.
