Texas Vs. Cincinnati Halftime Update: Longhorns Struggling To Score, Down 31-17

The Texas Longhorns couldn't hit the side of a fire station in the first half against the Cincinnati Bearcats in the second round match-up of the NCAA Tournament.

Texas scored a season-low in a half, trailing Cincinnati 31-17 and shooting 17 percent from the field. The only scoring power the Longhorns have had has come from leading-scorer J'Covan Brown who has 9 points at halftime. Yancy Gates leads the Bearcats at halftime with 8 points and 6 rebounds, on his way to a double-double performance if he stays consistent.

Texas is having all sorts of issues. Aside from not being able to shoot the ball, the Longhorns are having issues passing it and catching it as well.
