No. 15 Texas keeps road roll going with 76-64 win over TCU
(AP Photo/Eric Gay)FORT WORTH, Texas – Andrew Jones and the Texas Longhorns took a busy bonus week of Big 12 road games and turned it into momentum for the postseason. 15 Texas finished the regular season with a third consecutive road victory, beating TCU 76-64 on Sunday night. They also won at Iowa State and 15th-ranked Oklahoma to reach 9-2 away from home and 6-2 in true road games. “It’s hard to win three road games in one week,” Coleman said. The Horned Frogs will have to win twice in the Big 12 tournament for him to avoid his first.
