Cowboys, Horns have a lot to live up to

Last college basketball season the only regular-season game anyone wanted to talk about was the triple-overtime thriller between Gonzaga and Michigan State at the Maui Invitational. The only way those teams would meet again would have been in the NCAA Tournament. Alas that didn't happen.

This year, college basketball fans are lucky. A couple Monday nights ago, we saw Texas go to Oklahoma State and take the Cowboys to triple overtime before OSU senior Mario Boggan hit the game-winning 3-pointer. Tonight, the teams meet again in Austin.

If we're lucky, Kevin Durant and Boggan will stage another duel. Let's just hope it ends in regulation this time.

Update: No overtime needed in this one indeed. Durant and Texas' other standout freshman, D.J. Augustin, took over in the second half and blew the Cowboys back to Stillwater.

I can't imagine how John Brady must feel watching Augustin on TV, knowing largely because of Hurricane Katrina, Augustin is making tons of plays in burnt orange and white instead of purple and gold.
