This time traveling to the University of Texas to face off against the Vaquero’s women’s basketball team. With a previous win the Vaqueros returned home to face off against the Wolverines. In a prior interview discussing the upcoming game head coach Lane Lord of UTRGV said, “What we’ve got to do is try to play more up temp, use some pressure defense in the full court and try to get them out of their rhythm.”
