The Texas Longhorns (20-13, 9-9) and Cincinnati Bearcats (24-10, 12-6) finally get underway in the NCAA Tournament second round at 11:15 a.m. at the Bridgestown Arena in Nashville, Tenn.
Texas is not really expected to beat Cincinnati, considering the dominance of the Bearcats' big man Yancy Gates, who comes into the game averaging 12.4 points and 9.2 rebounds a game. The Longhorns big men are going to have a tough battle with Gates.
But for Texas there is the elite scorer of the Big 12 conference in J'Covan Brown, who averages 20.1 points a game, supported by Sheldon McClellan (11.3) and Myck Kabongo (9.8).
Here is a look at the game time and television schedule for Friday's game.
Location: Bridgestown Arena, Nashville, Tenn.
Time: 11:15 a.m. CDT
