Going into Tuesday afternoon in Maui, the #6 Longhorns knew they would face their first tough test of the season against a top ten-ranked Notre Dame team that features one of the top offensive teams in the country. The end result was a one-point loss after a trio of three pointers by A.J. Abrams and Justin Mason in a game that was controlled in the closing minutes by Notre Dame. Leading 81-77 with 17.2 seconds to play, Notre Dame missed four consecutive free throws with Zach Hillesland and Luke Harangody missing two each. Down four points, Longhorn (3-1) guard Justin Mason hit a 23-footer from the left wing after an offensive rebound by Connor Atchley in the corner. After Harangody missed the second of his two free throws, Abrams took two dribbles and let a half court runner fly that was right on line, but hit the front rim.
