The University of Texas softball season ended last night with a 2-1 loss to Tennessee at the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City. 

Earlier in the day, the Longhorns kept their national title hopes alive with a 3-0 victory over Florida.

For the first time since 2006, the University of Texas at Austin softball team is in Oklahoma City for the Women’s College World Series. It’s their fifth trip in team history, but the soft national championship has thus far eluded the Longhorns.

They’ll open against Arizona State tonight in a game that will air on ESPN2.

The men’s basketball program at the University of Texas has been on a winning streak lately. That is, until last night.

The streak is over – and so is the team's season – after a 66 to 49 loss to Kansas State in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament.

The Texas Longhorns have advanced to the women’s volleyball championship game for the third time in four years.  The only thing standing in the way of a possible national title is Penn State. 

The Lady Lions has defeated the Longhorns in their last two final four appearances. Texas coach Jerritt Elliott hopes this will be different than their last trip to the title game in Tampa three years ago, a heartbreaking five-set loss against Penn State.
