Texas-Stanford basketball scheduled to play Dec. 19 in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena

Texas coach Chris Beard is putting the finishing touches on the Longhorns' non-conference schedule for his first season.

Texas men’s basketball will play a non-conference game against Stanford on Dec. 19 in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena, UT coach Chris Beard told the American-Statesman.

Texas just ended Stanford’s two-decade run as Directors’ Cup champions. Now, the two schools’ basketball teams will meet for the first time since UT captured a 75-73 win at Stanford on Dec. 19, 2015.
