Friday can’t come quickly enough for the Longhorns.
Fresh off of a disappointing first-round loss at the hands of Baylor in the Big 12 Championship, the Longhorns are eager for redemption heading into the NCAA Tournament.
Monday’s televised draw saw North Texas selected as the Longhorns’ home opponent. The matchup marks Texas’ first postseason appearance since 2014.
“Big 12 (play) didn’t go as planned,” freshman forward Haley Berg said. “But we’ve looked over it, we’ve talked as a team and with our coaches, we know what happened and we know what we need to do to get back to our fighting mentality.”
The two programs met earlier this year in a preseason contest. Texas dominated possession, outshooting the Mean Green 21-7, but it took a last-minute goal by sophomore Cyera Hintzen to put the team away, and the Longhorns edged by 1-0 on the road.

Beat the heat like a soccer player
Here’s advice from player Rachel Holden of the University of North Texas:
Stay hydrated. This isn’t about just drinking water right before practice, but drinking water throughout the day as well as limiting unhealthy drinks like soda.
Grab a Gatorade or chocolate milk after practice to replenish minerals, carbohydrates and proteins.
Don’t practice in the hottest part of the day. Instead, practice in the morning or evening when it’s not as sunny.
Don’t complain about the heat. It’s easier if you deal with it head-on.
