Horns banquet award winners
Austin American-Statesman
Texas men's basketball star D.J. Augustin, honored nationally with his inclusion on several All-America first teams, received a local award Monday. Augustin, the Horns' sophomore point guard, was named the team's most valuable player at the Longhorns' annual awards banquet. Whether Augustin will be a candidate for the award next season, however, remains a question.


Garrido: I'm not going anywhere

Texas coach Augie Garrido wasn't even aware there were rumors circulating about him heading to California at the end of the season. Garrido's putting a stop to those thoughts.

Texas baseball team in dire need of fresh pitching
Daily Texan
You'd expect a 9-2 victory over the No. 8 team in the nation in their home field to cause a bit more excitement in 40 Acres. But then again, I guess the record-setting (and laughably embarrassing) 31-12 and 13-2 killings Texas was handed the two days before by Missouri might force you to overlook Sunday's modest-in-comparison win. So what happened to Texas?

Belt fitting in with 'Horns
Daily Texan
See ball, hit ball. It's a cliche for the simplest approach to hitting a baseball. Easy as it sounds, everyone will tell you it's really not that simple. Everyone except Brandon Belt. It's just not that complicated for Texas' first baseman.


SuperSonics' Durant on ... Durant, NBA, Horns
Austin American-Statesman
I had the opportunity to speak with Kevin Durant on Friday before he played his first game in San Antonio as a pro. He got his 20 points — that's his season average — but the end was an oh-so-familiar refrain, another blowout loss. At 19-62, the Seattle SuperSonics are the worst team in the Western Conference, even with Durant, the odds-on favorite to capture the league's Rookie of the Year award. One year after making the jump from college to the pros, KD hasn't changed. He's still the soft-spoken scoring machine he was at Texas, but the games are tougher up here and the rigors of a long NBA season are different than the 35 games he played in his only college season.
