Texas has never played Indiana before. The Longhorns, however, have recorded a 10-2 win over Texas Southern this season. Texas also dropped a 6-5 game to the Aggies in College Station on April 10.
During the NCAA’s selection show on Monday, it was also revealed that Texas is the tournament’s 13th overall seed. If it claims its regional, UT will draw with the winner of Ole Miss’ regional.
