Head Coach Chris Beard's talented bunch, who improved to 5-0 this past Saturday after blowing out UT Rio Grande Valley by 37, will now get a big step-up in competition.
"This is a great opportunity, you know, week for us. We understand who we're about to play. A couple of the best teams in college basketball. It's a great opportunity for us to kind of see where we're at this early season. And keep improving. We basically got two Big 12 games coming up. That's the way I best describe it to our team," said Coach Beard.
No. 7 Creighton is coming to Austin on Thursday with tip-off at 6 p.m.
