Not hearing from Texas?

It's no secret that the Texas Longhorns have a very solid group of young linebackers on campus. UT was in on a couple of '09 linebackers early, but that interest has apparently halted for one of the Lone Star State's best.

Texas upsets Big 12 co-leader Oklahoma State
Austin American-Statesman
Texas coach Gail Goestenkors has stressed to her team all season that the only thing missing was a signature, nation-take-notice victory. The Longhorns accomplished that Wednesday night with a 70-63 home victory over Oklahoma State. The Cowgirls, coming into Wednesday's game, boasted the Big 12's best record at 16-1 and the league's highest-octane player in guard Andrea Riley.

Longhorns get defensive with Cowgirls
San Antonio Express-News
Texas guard Carla Cortijo was on her back just beyond the 3-point arc, while her teammates Brittainey Raven and Rachel Rentschler danced over her. Funny thing, though — Cortijo didn't just drain a 3-pointer, she was peeling herself off the Erwin Center court after drawing a charge. But there was celebration nonetheless, and that was every bit a part of UT's game plan against No. 14 Oklahoma State as was the Longhorns' multiple defensive fronts thrown at Cowgirls hotshot guard Andrea Riley. Both seemed to work, as the Longhorns halted OSU's eight-game winning streak with a 70-63 victory Wednesday. Riley, who is sixth in the nation in scoring at 22 points a game, was held to just 15 — her second-lowest total of the season.
