Temple will try to “hook those horns” this upcoming basketball season.
The Texas Longhorns announced Friday that they will host the Owls in a nonconference game on Dec. 17.
Temple is expected to provide Texas’ stiffest nonconference competition in Austin.
The Owls return four starters from last season’s 26-8 team that reached the third round of the NCAA tournament. Texas, on the other hand, must replace all five starters from last season’s 28-8 team that, like Temple, advanced to the third round of the tourney.
