Texas holds on 70-64 to beat Vanderbilt and give the Big 12 a victory in the Big 12-SEC challenge.
Texas looked very good in this game at times with solid rebounding, a fast transition game, and intensity on defense.
It also looked inconsistent at times and let Vanderbilt hang around in a game that should have been won by double-digits.
Texas missed a lot of free-throws down the stretch, which could have widened the lead.
The free-throw shooting is something that can get better with practice, so it shouldn't be worried about too much by Longhorn fans.
Moving forward there are a lot of bright spots in this Texas team. Four players scored 10 or more points for Texas, showing consistency on offense.
It will have its hands full in a Big 12 that includes Kansas and Oklahoma State, but Texas fans should feel good about this game.
