Game:  Texas-Miami
Post Time: 2:45 p.m., Sunday

Texas just took the court against Miami and, as expected, was showered with boos. Days before the Longhorns played Austin Peay, Texas coach Rick Barnes had this to say in a conference call with the media: "We're scheduled to come play Arkansas next year, and if the fans don't treat us well, we're not going to come. You can put that out there. I'm serious. We've got enough money here we can buy our way out of it. So, they'd better be good to us."

He has since apologized, explaining that he was joking and has much respect for the state of Arkansas and its basketball program. But unfortunately for Texas, the damage is done and all the locals are taking Miami's side. Now it's time for tip off.
