AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Longhorns are scrambling to earn an invitation to the NCAA tournament. Their coach sounds like he wonders if he's leading a team worthy of one.
After a close loss to Baylor on Monday night, Barnes said his young squad doesn't listen to coaching, doesn't understand game situations and hasn't learned how to change those problems in order to win.
Barnes didn't sound angry after Texas blew a 12-point lead in the 77-72 loss. He sounded more resigned to accept what he's got on the court and hope that it is good enough.
Texas (17-11, 7-8 Big 12) has played in the NCAA tournament 13 consecutive years.
