Texas heads to the NIT Final Four with a big win over Colorado

Longhorns have a date with TCU in the semifinals.

The Texas Longhorns have won their third game in a row in the NIT and that sends them to the Big Apple.

UT dominated Colorado in front of another sparse crowd at the Erwin Center, winning 68-55.

It was 14-13 Texas when the Longhorns went on a roll -- Kerwin Roach with a layup; Dylan Osetkowski with a tip-in; Courtney Ramey with a three; Roach with a layup; Gerald Liddell with a three and Roach with a three.

A 15-0 run and this one was over.

Texas was up by 25 at halftime and the Longhorns coasted to the win, which gets them a ticket to New York City.

The Longhorns play TCU in Madison Square Garden in the NIT semifinals on Tuesday.
