Trouble in Texas continues as Longhorns suffer 53-50 loss at Michigan, the fourth loss in five games for the Longhorns. They had a two-point lead with 1:56 to go but ended the game with a pair of Eric Davis Jr. misses and a bad foul by Jarrett Allen that disqualified him. They had chances but couldn't close the show.

Texas in an early-season bind

After starting the season 3-0, Texas has lost three of its past four games. The Longhorns are shooting poorly from 3-point range, and need to pick it up if they want to be in contention for an NCAA tournament bid, writes Myron Medcalf. Must-see teams

Is Top-25 exit a good thing for Texas?

The Longhorns are raw, notes Myron Medcalf. Shaka Smart might be better off guiding the young Horns without an intense national spotlight. Good, bad and ugly

Texas' James Banks is ejected for hitting a Northwestern player after a jump ball. The Wildcats lead No. 22 Texas by double digits in the second half.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas freshman center James Banks ejected after throwing a punch (more like a chop) during a scramble for a loose ball against Northwestern. Texas unraveling, down double digits. Playing like an immature team right now.
