Texas non-conference game Tuesday vs. Texas A&M Corpus-Christi canceled

Coach Shaka Smart’s club now won’t play again until facing No. 3 Kansas at 11 a.m. Saturday in Lawrence

Texas' Andrew Jones (1) is congratulated by teammates, including Greg Brown (4), after making a three-point basket against Oklahoma State during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in Austin, Texas, Sunday, Dec. 20, 2020.

Texas’ next non-conference game against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has been canceled due to COVID-19 protocols, both schools announced Saturday. A&M-Corpus Christi has paused team activities. 

The two men’s basketball teams were scheduled to meet Tuesday at the Erwin Center as part of a men’s/women’s doubleheader. The Texas women’s game has not been affected. The UT women are scheduled to face Lamar at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

The Corpus Christi game was supposed to be the final men’s tune-up before Big 12 play begins in earnest after the new year. Now, No. 10 Texas (7-1, 1-0 Big 12) will next play Saturday at No. 3 Kansas (8-1, 2-0). Tipoff is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kan.

A UT source said the Longhorns would try to look for another non-conference replacement, however that could be difficult given the late notice.
