Excerpt from the University of Texas Women’s Basketball team’s Media Day held on October 26, 2023:
They’re just focused, one game, one day at a time, trying to get 1% better every day. And we’ll try, as coaches, keeping them focused one game at a time. I think when you do that, and you don’t get too far ahead of yourself, that when you can look up in March and realized you a really hot team, special team, and you got a chance to do something in post season.
Fans and media got their first glimpse of the 2023/24 University of Texas women’s basketball team at the annual Orange & White Scrimmage at the Moody Center.
Forward Aaliyah Moore, still recovering from ACL surgery, served as master of ceremony. Notable in the player introductions were Khadija Faye, who sporting the flag of the Republic of Senegal, and Mississippian Madison Booker, who looked every bit the Texas, weaning a cowboy.
Two key take-away’s from Vic Schaefer’s press conference: Insight to recruiting, Coach is big KISS fan.
“For us, I’ll be honest, it’s all about relationships. We haven’t changed in that regard. That’s the thing I think about, when you talk about the kids we’re recruiting currently, and whatever class you want to talk about. My staff is so good about building the relationship piece"
A storybook ending for one is a nightmare for another. Hannah Anderson’s goal in the final second of play gave the Texas Tech Red Raiders a 2-to-1 win over the #14 University of Texas Longhorns.
The loss was Texas first regular season Big 12 Conference loss since November 6, 2020.
"I knew it was going to be a battle; it always is against Texas Tech. It wasn't a great way to end a match at home," said Texas head coach Angela Kelly
TTL Sports Media caught an early glimpse of the University of Texas women’s basketball team as they participated in pre-season conditioning exercises in the Bubble at Frank Denius Fields. These conditioning exercises were not practices, which are closely regulated by the NCAA.
The Longhorns return all but one player from the 2022-23 team, representing 88% of their scoring and 94% of their rebounding.

The #17 Texas Longhorn routed the Stephen F Austin Woodchopper by a final score of 7-to-0. The win was the most lopsided in the series history. The only Texas player to stay on the pitch longer than 60 minutes was goalkeeper Mia Justus.
The Longhorns were led by Lexi Missimo with three goals and four assist. Also finding the back of the net were Trinity Byars, Avery Clark, Lauren Lapomarda, Jilly Shimkin and Arianna Brothers.
Trinity Byars, in only her junior year, set a program record with her fourth career hat trick, as the University of Texas Longhorn thrashed the University of Texas Rio Grande Vaqueros, 5-to-0.
"I don't think I'll ever get bored of being a broken record,” said Texas head coach Angela Kelly on Trinity Byars' fourth hat trick. “She just finds open spaces and her teammates look for her and she's just clinical with her finishes."
The Louisiana State University Tigers defeated the University of Texas Longhorns in women’s soccer, 3-to-1, giving the Longhorns a taste what is to come in SEC.
Texas had the enthusiasm, and the opportunities, but appeared to lack the discipline. The Longhorns out-shot LSU 18-to12 in total, but were even with shots-on-target at seven each. Texas also had the advantage on corner kicks, 8-to-4, but also committed more fouls (14-to-10). Each team was shown a yellow card.
Vic Schaefer, head coach for the University of Texas women’s basketball, spoke with the media on the upcoming 2023 / 24 basketball season. These are some of his key comments from the press conference:
“This is a different group. They’ve been diligent in the gym, all summer. Working extremely hard.”
“At the end of the day, you have a gym full of people, and they’re here on their own.”
“This summer’s probably been the best summer I’ve had as a coach in a long, long time, if ever. And certainly, the best summer we’ve had here at Texas.”
Junior Trinity Byars led the University of Texas Longhorn women’s soccer team (2-0-0) to a 6-0 win over the Rice University Owls (0-2-0) with a first-half hat trick. The feat ties a school record for the most career hat tricks.
"I don't get sick of saying it, but (Trinity) is very special, and in combination with Lexi (Missimo), her and Lexi are a special combination: five goals and two assists among the two of them today was remarkable,” said Texas Head Coach Angela Kelly. “I said it in the press conference at the beginning of the season, I'm just grateful I'm not the coaches who are organizing (defenses) to play against them, especially when they do such a good job of inviting in the rest of the players to make a four-or-five-player combination."
Porter Brown went 3-for-4 at the plate with two RBIs and three runs to lead the University of Texas Longhorns (33-17) over the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) Mavericks (25-22) by a score of 10-to-5. Peyton Powell, Garret Guillemette and Eric Kennedy each had two hits.

It’s not often that a head coach begins a press conference with an apology. But that’s exactly what Texas head coach Vic Schaeffer did.
“I need to apologize to the University of Texas for today and how my team played,” said Vic Schaeffer. “This university deserves better than that and I'm accountable for that.”
On March 18, 2023, the NCAA March Madness women's basketball game between the University of Texas Longhorns and University of East Carolina Pirates took place. The game was highly anticipated, with both teams eager to secure a spot in the next round of the tournament. However, Texas emerged as the clear victor with a final score of 76-40.
From the start, it was evident that Texas was the stronger team. They dominated the court, with their players displaying impressive skills in both offense and defense. East Carolina struggled to keep up, and it wasn't long before Texas took a significant lead.

It was a different team that stepped on to the court to take on the University of Baylor Bears, and it wasn’t the team that handily defeated Oklahoma on their home court. The University of Texas Longhorns fell, 54-to-63, to Baylor.
The disappointment hurt on many fronts. A win would have clinched the Big 12 Championship for Texas. The team was playing before their largest crowd of the season, 10,763 fans. It was the final home for the Seniors. And the team honored the Neighborhood Longhorns program with a check for $156,000.

That’s the best way to describe the #3 University of Texas Longhorns (1-0) women’s basketball team as the defeat University of Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns (1-1), 68-to-45.
This is not the team that I expected to see after two, 100-point plus exhibition games, and a team about to travel to Storrs, Connecticut to take on the #6 Huskies.
The Longhorns committed 25 turnovers, shot only 39% from the floor and 9% from beyond the arc. The turnovers were the most for a Schaefer-coached team at Texas.

If there was a mercy rule in NCAA soccer, than this was the time to have used it.

The game had the unusual distinguish of Texas head coach David Pierce becoming a grounds keeper.
