"Shucks!" That was how Texas Coach Jody Conradt explained her top-ranked Longhorns' 79-75 loss to Louisiana Tech last night in the second game of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament semifinal doubleheader at the Erwin Special Events Center. The loss brought an end to top-ranked Texas' one-year reign as national champion. If there is any team in the sport that can be play anywhere, anytime, in front of any crowd, it is the Techsters, and the fact that 15,303 mostly partisan Longhorns fans (312 no-shows)

With the Big 12 title already wrapped up, No. 7 Oklahoma had little to play for other than pride and a winning streak. Unfortunately for host Texas and its NCAA Tournament hopes, the Sooners decided both were important. Oklahoma hit its first five shots of the second half as the Sooners opened up a 12-point lead on their way to a 65-54 victory last night. Stacey Dales led the Sooners with 17 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. The Sooners' 15th consecutive win may have dealt a serious blow to Texas' NCAA Tournament hopes.

Tucker had 24 points and 13 rebounds and Daniel Gibson added 18 points as visiting, No. 15 Texas beat fourth-ranked Memphis yesterday, 69-58, snapping the Tigers' eight-game winning streak. Texas (11-2), ranked No. 2 for the first five polls of the season before consecutive losses, held Memphis (11-2) almost 30 points below its average.

REMEMBER THAT exposure monstrosity that was going to separate Texas from those other top-feeders on the food chain? Well, upon further review, maybe not so much. Or at least not the way some envisioned when the Longhorns entered into a 20-year, $300 million partnership with - who else? - ESPN. Coach Mack Brown spends 6 hours a week taping six televison shows. And the first 30 minutes of practice also makes it on the air. Recruits see it. So do other teams. "I'm a solider," Brown said recently, when asked about the partnership.

Brad Buckman seems to have great recuperative powers. Buckman recovered from his latest leg injury - which forced him out of the Villanova game - to collect 16 points and nine rebounds as No. 5 Texas beat visiting Texas Tech, 80-46, last night. LaMarcus Aldridge had 19 points and seven rebounds to lead the Longhorns, (15-2, 3-0 Big 12), who have won seven straight. Buckman, who left in the first half of Saturday's 58-55 win over Villanova, has missed four games this season because of various hip, calf and ankle injures.

Marcus Morris scored 18 points to lead top-ranked Kansas to an 80-68 victory over 14th-ranked Texas last night in Austin, Texas. The Jayhawks easily handled an opponent that a few weeks ago was supposed to challenge them for the Big Twelve title. Kansas (23-1 overall, 9-0 league) outmuscled and outhustled the Longhorns (19-5, 5-4) in just about every way, holding the top-scoring team in the conference to 37 percent shooting and scoring 27 points off 17 turnovers. Freshman J'Covan Brown scored 28 points for the Longhorns, who have lost five of their last seven games after gaining the first No. 1 ranking in school history a month ago.

Their explosive, come-from-behind, 102-89 wipeout of Xavier was in its final minute Thursday night and Longhorns were hugging Longhorns and double- high-fiving everyone in sight. With 18 seconds left, Texas coach Tom Penders allowed guard Travis Mays a well-deserved curtain call, to a thunderous ovation from 16,413 Southwest Conference fans at Reunion Arena. Mays's backcourt mate, 6-4 Lance Blanks, was waiting at courtside for Mays. Blanks, who had fouled out with 54 seconds left, picked up Mays and hugged him the way you would an overstuffed trash bag and did a few 360s.

Damion James scored 12 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the second half, and No. 11 Texas upset visiting Kansas, which is ranked third, 72-69, last night. James missed most of the first half with foul trouble, then provided the muscle the Longhorns (20-4, 7-2 Big 12) needed to counter the Jayhawks' size and strength under the basket. James finished with 14 points. Connor Atchely led Texas with 16 points and A.J. Abrams added 14 points. Darrell Arthur scored 22 to lead the Jayhawks (23-2, 8-2)

C OULD JON GRUDEN be the next head football coach at the University of Texas? Orangebloods.com, citing a source, reported yesterday that Gruden would consider the job if asked. The position opened when Mack Brown stepped down on Sunday after 16 years with the Longhorns. "It's no secret that every major position that comes open stirs Gruden rumors," the source told the website. "The reason why the talks never go anywhere is because there are definitely two, maybe three situations he's always said he would have to listen to. When Texas calls, you gotta listen.

THE EAGLES' starters will play this week against the Bears (even if at some positions, that isn't necessarily a good thing), and Chip Kelly is not going to Texas. That was what was really new at Kelly's day-after news conference. There were plenty of other things said, but they were mostly extended explanations of decisions made during Sunday's 48-30 loss at Minnesota, and Kelly mostly stuck to the themes he developed in his postgame session. If you're still angry over the short kickoff strategy, you didn't hear the coach acknowledge it was wrongheaded, though he did admit the "mortar kicks" worked better than the squibs.

Plymouth Whitemarsh High School product Jaylen Bond, a 6-foot-7 sophomore, will leave both Texas and the Longhorns' basketball program at the end of the semester, according to a source. Texas coach Rick Barnes granted Bond his release from the basketball team. Bond, who averaged 2.8 points and 3.2 rebounds in just 11 minutes of action, hasn't decided on a destination, but Temple could become an option. As a high school senior in 2011, Bond backed out of his scholarship to Pittsburgh and flirted with spending the following year at St. Thomas More, a prep school in Connecticut.

AUSTIN, Texas - A son of Depression-era Oklahoma, Darrell Royal came to Texas to take over a sleeping giant of a football program. Over 20 years, his folksy approach to sports and life, his inventive wishbone offense and a victory in the "Game of the Century" - where a U.S. president declared his team national champion - made him an icon of college football. Mr. Royal, who won two national championships and turned the Longhorns program into a national power, died early Wednesday at age 88 of complications from cardiovascular disease, school spokesman Bill Little said.

Four Big Ten players were among the 25 quarterfinalists for the Lombardi Award, given annually to the top linebacker or lineman in the country. However, Penn State linebackers Michael Mauti and Gerald Hodges did not make the cut. Were they snubbed? Considering their performances through the first six games, the answer appears to be yes. For Mauti, who has earned two Big Ten defensive player of the week awards and one national defensive player of the week honor, it especially seems so. And on Monday, Hodges, a Paulsboro High graduate, was named the Big Ten defensive player of the week after posting 11 tackles (1.5 tackles for loss)
