Texas to build basketball arena on campus

University of Texas President Greg Fenves says the school will build an on-campus basketball arena with a preferred location near the football stadium.

Chantel Jennings ESPN Staff Writer 

Mohamed Bamba is between Kentucky, Duke, Texas and Michigan and doesn't have a timeline for his final decision. The biggest thought on his mind right now -- other than playing well at these hoops events and doing well in school -- is when he can get his driver's license because like most New Yorkers, he has never had use for his license with the ample public transport. He's hoping to get it (and a car) before college.

Kansas State beat Baylor 70-64. The ViewFromVegas is the Wildcats did it as 4.5-point underdogs and +180 on the money line, plus it completed a day where 'dogs went 4-0 ATS in the Big 12 tournament with three outright upsets. The biggest was TCU knocking off No. 1 Kansas at +400 while Iowa State was a short +105 'dog against Oklahoma State. West Virginia was the only Big 12 top seed to survive with a 63-53 victory over Texas but didn't cover as a 10.5-point fave.

Poor shooting after halftime by West Virginia has kept Texas just close enough for an exciting finish at the Big 12 tournament. The Longhorns are looking for a closing push to crash the semifinals as the No. 10 seed.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas, the No. 10 seed in Kansas City, pulled a second-half comeback Wednesday.

Jevon Carter, the league's defensive player of the year, hit 4 of 6 3-pointers in the first half and leads all players with 16 points.
