Team preview: Texas
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Before the NCAA Tournament last year, Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim publicly hailed Texas as his choice to win it all. His reason? The Longhorns' great depth.
A funny thing happened at the Superdome in New Orleans, though, as the Longhorns met the Orangemen in a national semifinal. And Texas, despite all its bodies, couldn't withstand the onslaught of freshman sensation Carmelo Anthony and Co. and lost, 95-84, to the eventual national champions.
