Talk about a Red River Shootout.
While hundreds of thousands of Texas and Oklahoma fans gather every year in anticipation for one of the biggest games of every football season, this year’s Longhorns-Sooners basketball game didn’t get quite the same pub.
That is, of course, until Texas’ Myck Kabongo banged his drum. The Horns’ star guard was suspended for a chunk of games early on, but he has been making up for lost time. Against dreaded Oklahoma, Kabongo went 9-of-13 from the field and sank 11-of-14 free throws en route to a 31-point, eight-rebound, six-assist masterpiece.
Oh yeah, and he lead his team to a desperately needed 22-point second-half comeback win, knocking off Oklahoma 92-86 in overtime.
