I've got a good friend names Steve. After growing up in San Antonio, he went to school at Duke. He's a calm, quiet-spoken fellow, until you get him talking about Duke basketball.
He instantly turns into a rapid Duke fan. It must be something they put in the water there.
Texas overcame a ten point first half deficit to run away from Minnesota and win 76-62. While a fairly solid performance top to bottom by Texas, the star of the night was without question A.J. Abrams, who scored 26 points, including eight from behind the arc.
Big Dexter Pittman continued his surge with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Damion James recorded 18 points and nine rebounds.
With the tip-off of Texas's first round match up against Minnesota about a day away, here are some links to previews of the game.
