Texas Releases Non-Conference Schedule

When the 2012-2013 Texas basketball season starts, the Longhorns won't be criticized for having a soft non-conference schedule.

While times have yet to be finalized, and only one game has a certain TV carrier at this point — the Jimmy V Classic against Georgetown will be televised on ESPN — the opponents were announced Wednesday, and the schedule certainly has the Rick Barnes difficult touch to it, including a possible two matchups with North Carolina, one of which will take place in Austin, the game vs. Georgetown at Madison Square Garden and a date with UCLA at Reliant Stadium in Houston. The slate only has one true road game, a Dec. 22 contest at Michigan State.
