Projected seed: 8

Texas has been a bit of a rollercoaster this season, flashing moments of brilliance punctuated by occasional stumbles. Their notable victories over Baylor and sweeping Oklahoma are marks of a team that knows how to handle business, but losses to Texas Tech and West Virginia suggest a degree of inconsistency. When they've been pitted against top-tier competition, such as UConn, Houston, and Kansas, the Longhorns have struggled to pull out victories, although their competitive showing against Houston at home illustrates they can hang with the elite. Their defensive metrics are commendable, indicating their ability to disrupt even the best offenses they face, and this could serve them well in the tournament setting where defensive tenacity often paves the way for upsets. The remaining games against Baylor and Oklahoma present opportunities to solidify their standing, with a victory over Baylor being a potential statement win that could offer a significant boost to their tournament resume. The matchup and stylistic adaptability of Texas will be key factors in their tournament progress, offering the potential for a deep run if the pieces fall into place.
