NEW YORK, Sporting Alert – The ESPN3 schedule for the NCAA basketball games taking place on Monday, November 21.

Monday’s matchup against Northwestern will be Texas’ first on the road this season and head coach Shaka Smart is ready to see how his youthful squad will handle the experience.

“We will see better athletes. We will see more size. We will see better teams. How do we respond to that?”
