While the NBA lockout continues with only mild concern from the sports-loving populace, the University of Texas Longhorns (and the Austin Toros) play on. The UT men handled Rhode Island 100-90 last Tuesday at the Drum behind J'Covan Brown's career-high 35 points. The women's team takes the court this Sunday vs. Alcorn State following Monday's 73-65 defeat of Southern Louisiana. Senior Ashley Gayle (pictured) swatted five of UT's nine blocks in that game, bringing her career total to 289, tying her with Ellen Bayer for the school's all-time record. With the Spurs, Mavericks, and Rockets away, come see the Horns play.

Vs. Alcorn State: Sun., Nov. 20, 2pm. Frank Erwin Center, 1701 Red River. $8-16. www.texassports.com.
