Texas opens as a 4.5-point favorite over BYU and the Bionic Knee.

Boris Diaw

France 74 - serbia 73. A win that feels good. Every player deserve credit for this win. Lets keep… instagram.com/p/sXqe82jI4h/

I reckon this graphic, NSFW video might be running on an endless loop at Moncrief this week: youtube.com/watch?v=7CVAts…

Stat of the day: @TXSTATEFOOTBALL is averaging 65 points per game when I cover the game.

Dan McCarney

Had on a James Worthy t-shirt last night at the UT/UNT game. My cousin asks, who is James Worthy? 50/50 I never speak to her again.

Mike Finger

Longhorns give Strong what he wanted in opener: expressnews.com/sports/college…

Quixem Ramirez

I had an absolute blast covering my first @TXSTATEFOOTBALL game for the @UniversityStar. Can't wait for the next one.

Quixem Ramirez

Btw, big shoutout to @Mariahmedinaaa, who basically saved my life today. I'm very, very lucky to have her on my staff.

Quandre Diggs: "That's what Texas should do to North Texas. ... That's the way the guys before us used to do it."

Paul Garcia

From earlier: On Ray Allen and what he could bring to the Spurs if he signed with SA: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/…

Mike Finger

Asked Strong how much he was saving for later: "We didn't hold anything back. There's nothing stored away. You saw what we're going to do."

Mike Finger

Strong gets a hug from UT president Bill Powers, then enters tunnel with students chanting, "Charlie! Charlie!"

Mike Finger

Charlie Strong era at Texas begins with a 38-7 victory that looked about like everyone expected.

Mike Finger

The man with the bionic knee will answer that next week. RT @JimVertuno: Is Texas defense as good as stat line?

Mike Finger

Dom Espinosa has made 40 straight starts, and is UT's most important offensive lineman. He just had to be helped off the field. Not good.

Mike Finger

Oldsters John Harris, Jordan Hicks and Demarco Cobbs - all stars tonight - signed at Texas a month after the UT-Alabama title game.

Mike Finger

You might remember John Harris from such old-school hits as "Throwing a TD to Jaxon Shipley" and "Catching a Hail Mary from Case McCoy."

Mike Finger

Asked this week how he'd improved the most over the past year, John Harris said, "Mentally and physically." That about covers it.

Mike Finger

Longhorns up 21-0 with nothing particularly flashy on offense. Again, Texas, this is your team. I imagine you can get used to it.

Mike Finger

DeMarco Cobbs and Mykkele Thompson just went all Lt. Daniels on McNulty.

Mike Finger

Most important part of Jordan Hicks' athletic, spinning interception return? He's still healthy after it was over.

Mike Finger

Sort of surprised Texas has a receiver as important as Shipley returning punts after missing three weeks with a hamstring injury.

Mike Finger

The first quarter of the Charlie Strong era is pretty much representative of what the regime wants, I reckon. Texas, this is your team.

Mike Finger

That is Ash at his finest. Broken play, moves a little, finds the open receiver. Not bad.

Mike Finger

If I'd told you before the game that Texas' defense would look great and its offense wouldn't, you probably would've just nodded, right?

Mike Finger

Dylan Haines joins notable recent Texas walk-ons like Ricky Williams and Ryan Bailey in making an immediate impact.

Mike Finger

Jason Hall is NOT the first true freshman to start for Texas since 2008. Adrian Colbert starts at safety instead.

Mike Finger

Red McCombs, who had Charlie Strong as a guest at his office last spring, is at midfield for the coin toss. No sign of Case McCoy.

Mike Finger

I just find that fascinating, is all.

Mike Finger

Five minutes before kickoff, Texas is down to a -21 favorite. Line moved four points in an hour this morning. http://t.co/4F4Mfk3mNA

Mike Finger

Looks like fences between Red McCombs, on the sideline in a golf cart, and Charlie Strong are officially mended.

Paul Garcia

In 26 minutes during Mexico's loss to Lithuania today, Gustavo Ayon finished with 12 points, six rebounds, and two assists.

Paul Garcia

Wrote about how on paper SA would have log jam at SG, but in games, Pop could use even more versatile lineups: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/…

Paul Garcia

Right now, the Spurs have more money than the Clippers, Cavaliers, or Mavericks could offer Allen: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/…

Paul Garcia

As for the price tag, Allen tallied 5.0 win shares last year with Miami - could make him worth $3-5 million. projectspurs.com/2014-articles/…

Paul Garcia

Though when looking at Defensive Rating, Allen was never a top-5 defender with the Heat in either season or playoffs: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/…

Paul Garcia

Using Synergy, here's how Allen's defense numbers stack up with the Spurs' numbers: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/… http://t.co/66LTGPWamw

Quantitative look at Ray Allen in Spurs’ system ift.tt/1qeWgc5 #spurs

Paul Garcia

Touching & moving the ball, Allen's numbers would likely increase if he played in SA system: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/… http://t.co/gSByPX0eQv

Paul Garcia

The Spurs shoot most of their 3-points in 3 ways, here's how Allen shoots those 3-pointers: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/… http://t.co/ScTCgtJO7D

Paul Garcia

Kinda obvious, but Ray Allen fits the Danny Green/Marco Belinelli mold offensively: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/… http://t.co/gA4g5XhDJl

Got some info on Aron Baynes' injury, he just cramped up late in the 4th after the two-handed dunk. (H/T @CJM2011)

Mike Finger

Former Longhorn. RT @YahooForde: Mizzou WR Darius White's first two catches of 2014 are for touchdowns, one 44 yards and one 39. Not bad.

My tweets are much more interesting in Spanish in my opinion. http://t.co/Afipwp4I0H

Brasil 65 x 63 França , sempre bom começar ganhando! We didnt play well but is always good to win! http://t.co/P4Ve4yBO7v

Mike Finger

My man @chuck_blount insisted the Hawkeyes were going 9-0. It's not even September yet and he's already suicidal.

Mike Finger

Of all of the offseason's misguided enthusiasm, Iowa's made the least sense. Just because your schedule stinks doesn't mean you don't.

Always tough to lose like that. Let's focus on next game. Thanks Spurs fans for your support so early! Let's go France!

Boris Diaw

La défaite est toujours difficile, surtout si proche... Continuons de travailler ! Merci aux fans dans la salle et devant vos télés !

Paul Garcia

Diaw & France face Serbia Sunday, Splitter & Brazil take on Iran tomorrow. Aron Baynes & Australia will face Korea.

Paul Garcia

Brazil defeats France 65-63. Boris Diaw: 15 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists. Tiago Splitter: 6 points, 3 rebounds.

Paul Garcia

15.7 seconds left in the 4th, France trails Brazil 63-60. LesBleus winning the 4th narrowly 19-17.

Paul Garcia

33.9 seconds left, Brazil leads 61-58 over France. Huertel with 8 points for Les Bleus as the starting PG.

Dan McCarney

Nando would have made that.

Paul Garcia

2:25 left in the 4th, Brazil takes a 58-51 lead over France. BRA has edge in 4th 12-10.

Paul Garcia

Splitter tried to take the charge as Diaw glided over him, but Bobo gets the free throws.

Paul Garcia

Boris posts Tiago and shoots a fadeaway over him, but the shot clanked off the rim. Brazil 56-49 with 3:45 left in 4th.

Kyle Anderson

Yessir! RT @oh_boy_shaun: WR on UCLA (fuller) from jersey?

Austin Daye

Armature night on repeat rt now

Dan McCarney

Main takeaway from this France-Brazil game is how much Les Bleus miss Nando De Colo.

Paul Garcia

Boris Diaw and-1. Just flew in the lane with the layup after drawing contact. Brazil 51-45 over France in 4th right now.

Paul Garcia

Goran Dragic led Slovenia with 21 points, 7 boards, & 4 assists. Not sure if Baynes got hurt, he went down after a dunk, never returned

Paul Garcia

Slovenia defeats Australia 90-80. Aron Baynes leads Boomers with 21 points & 7 rebounds.

Mike Finger

For entertainment only: Vegas Insider consensus on Texas-North Texas moved four points in 36 minutes today. http://t.co/4F4Mfk3mNA

Paul Garcia

3Q: Brazil 46, France 41. Diaw 8 points, 4 assists, 3 boards. Splitter 6 points.

Paul Garcia

I take that back, Baynes isn't in the game right now.

Paul Garcia

Baynes is ok, he's back in the game. Looked like he was in pain after he dunked it. But he's playing again.

Paul Garcia

From what I see, it looks like Baynes was able to get back to the bench.

Paul Garcia

Aron Baynes just threw down a dunk, but is now hurt on the floor. Looks like leg area.

Paul Garcia

Tiago with the block on Gobert. Wasn't on the level of when he blocked Wade in the Finals, but still a solid play.

Paul Garcia

Neto with the behind-the-back pass to Splitter, who uses a little up-and-under to score over Gobert.

Paul Garcia

France just ran motion weak like the Spurs do, only the result wasn't quite the same as Lauvergne missed the shot.

Paul Garcia

Boris Diaw just went coast-to-coast. Grabbed the defensive board, shook a few guys, then scored the layup.

Paul Garcia

About 5 minutes left in the 4th, Boomers trail Slovenia by 13 points. Baynes with 19 points and 6 boards.

Mike Finger

Irrationally early observation: The pressure Virginia is putting on Hundley bodes well for Ced Reed, Malcom Brown and company.

Paul Garcia

Nico Batum now with 10 points for France. I'm not sure how Brazil left him open when he's FRA's main option...

Paul Garcia

The auto-translator on my browser has changed Huertas' name to Orchards because that's the English translation for some reason...

Paul Garcia

Jazz rookie Dante Exum has played just 11 minutes in three quarters, as evidenced by his exhibition performances, not quite ready for FIBA

Paul Garcia

Without Patty Mills, the Boomers are having to get their offense from the interior and the pick-and-roll play of Joe Ingles.

Paul Garcia

3Q: Slovenia 69, Australia 60. Baynes leading Boomers with 17 points, 6 rebounds. Goran Dragix leads SLO with 17 points, 5 boards, 3 dimes.

Paul Garcia

Brazil took control in 2Q, outscored France 17-8. Batum & Gobert with 13 combined points for Les Bleus. Barbosa 6 points for BRA.

Paul Garcia

Half: Brazil 28, France 26. Splitter 2 points, 1 board, 1 assist. Diaw: 4 points, 3 assists, 1 board.

Paul Garcia

Without Tony Parker, this French team's offense is very Batum/Diaw heavy. BRA is doing what they can to make it tough on Batum.

Paul Garcia

Took until the final two minutes left in the half, but Brazil has taken the lead from France. Brazil being aggressive on Batum

Paul Garcia

Tiago posts Gobert, uses the up-and-under to draw the foul. Tiago to shoot free throws 3 and 4.

Paul Garcia

Boomers have opened second half against Slovenia with 7-2 run. Slovenia leads by 1. Baynes up to 15 points, 4 boards.

Paul Garcia

NBATV RT @suneet67: @Paul Garcia what channel is the game on?

Paul Garcia

Diaw sets the pick, waltzes to the rim off the roll. Very Diaw-esque scoring basket. France 22-18. Diaw 4 points.
