A dejected Mohamed Bamba said he isn't worried about setting a timeline to make a decision whether or not to enter the NBA draft. If anything, Texas' star freshman said he's still processing a loss to Nevada that made his freshman season fall short of expectation.

Texas freshman Mo Bamba, after his return Thursday in a four-point loss Texas Tech, said he's pleased with how the Longhorns are playing as they head into the next round of the postseason. And Bamba is not surprised by the offensive outburst from guard Jacob Young.

Second-seeded Texas Tech staved off a Texas comeback bid, turning away the Longhorns 73-69 in the third game Thursday at the Big 12 tournament. The Longhorns cut a 14-point disadvantage to one in the second half behind a career-high 29 points off the bench from Jacob Young -- the highest-single game total by a Texas player this year -- but Tech got 25 from Keenan Evans to win its second straight after four consecutive losses. The Red Raiders will play West Virginia or Baylor in a Friday night semifinal.

Trae Young said after the loss that OU had the hardest schedule in the country. The Sooners certainly have a case, they rank 3rd in SOS per espn.com/bpi . North Carolina and Texas rank 1st and 2nd.

Texas guard Kerwin Roach scored nine points to go with seven assists and six rebounds in 37 minutes Wednesday -- and had one tooth saved. Roach lost a tooth in a collision near the Iowa State goal in the first half. "I saw a tooth on the free-throw line," Roach said. "And I was like, 'Man, my tooth fell out.'" Teammate Matt Coleman retrieved the tooth, and Roach returned after to the court after gathering his wits. The tooth was glued back into his mouth by a dentist at halftime. Center Mo Bamba, watching from the bench, lauded Roach's toughness. "But he's not that pretty of a guy anyway," Bamba said.
