Texas, OSU brace for rematch tonight

February 12, 2007


— The first meeting was an instant classic and one that made Texas' Kevin Durant the freshman darling of college basketball.

For 55 minutes of play, Durant and Oklahoma State's Mario Boggan traded baskets and rebounds in a furious triple-overtime thriller. Boggan finally ended it with an improbable three-pointer for a 105-103 Cowboys victory back on Jan. 16.

"I don't know if I'll ever be involved in another one like that," Texas coach Rick Barnes said after the game.

Well, get ready, coach. The No. 17 Cowboys and Longhorns meet in the rematch tonight in Austin.

As great as that game was, with Durant and Boggan both hitting for 37 points, "the bottom line is, we went in there and lost," said Texas guard A.J. Abrams.

"We want to take it to them," Abrams said.
