AUSTIN -- Texas snapped a two-game skid and yet Rick Barnes
sounded like a coach still mad at his basketball team.
The Longhorns (12-2) pulled out a 67-59 win over TCU.
Minutes later, Barnes lashed out at his bench.
There's a reason walk-on Ian Mooney played a career-high 14
minutes against the Horned Frogs: It was a clear message that
reserves who are on scholarship haven't earned playing time.
Mooney's 14 minutes and two points were more than reserves Clint
Chapman, Dexter Pittman and Alexis Wangmene had combined.
Mooney's lone basket provided all of UT's bench scoring
Wednesday night. His only rebound set up a key 3-pointer late in
the game. He also blocked a shot.
Barnes is driving his team to get back to the form that
propelled an eleven-game winning streak to start the season.
Texas plays Saint Mary's (California) at home on Saturday.
