The University of Texas is getting the job done on the basketball court. Both the Longhorns men's and women's basketball teams currently sit at the top of the Big 12 Conference standings.
Texas women's basketball has overcome a slow start to the season and is one of the hottest teams in the nation. The Longhorns are winners of seven out of their last eight games, improving to 18-6 overall.
On the men's side, Texas keeps finding ways to win in league play. Rodney Terry's squad is 3-0 in one-possession games following its big win over Kansas State on Saturday. They find themselves at 8-2 in Big 12 play with a massive opportunity against Kansas on Monday.
Each team is building a solid resume for the NCAA Tournament in March. Last season Texas' women made a run to the Elite Eight while the men's team advanced to the round of 32.
