Texas out of NCAA tournament first time since '98

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas' long and miserable season would seem like it can't end soon enough. Coach Rick Barnes may not let that happen.

The Longhorns crashed out of the Big 12 tournament Thursday night and for the first time since 1998 won't be playing in the NCAA tournament. But Barnes said afterword he expects the worst Texas team of his tenure will keep playing next week in the lower-level College Basketball Invitational, which will announce its lineup on Sunday night.

Texas is 16-17. If the Longhorns don't play - and win - at least two more games, Barnes will have his worst losing season at Texas.

Looking back, the season began unraveling from the state when point guard Myck Kabongo started serving what would ultimately be a 23-game NCAA suspension.
