Texas releases info for walk-on basketball tryouts

Posted September 21st, 2016


The call has been placed.

On Wednesday, the Texas athletic department released info for walk-on tryouts for the men’s basketball team.

Rec-league stars, it’s your time to shine.


Sure, it’s going to take something special to impress Shaka Smart enough to earn a spot on the roster, but we know you’re still riding high off the time you drained five 3-pointers in the intramural championship.

Tryouts will be held 7 p.m. Sept. 29 inside Cooley Pavilion, and are open to full-time University of Texas male students only. For the full info on applying, visit this link.

Who knows, you could find yourself playing in the NCAA Tournament.

Just one question: Where are all the good pick-up games going down these days?
