Women’s Basketball fan “watch parties,” bus trip to Baylor game planned
AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas women's basketball fans have two great options to get together and follow the Longhorns in their upcoming road games – watch parties at a popular local restaurant (Pluckers Wing Factory and Grill Restaurant) for the next two televised games (at Rutgers and at Kansas) and a bus trip to Waco for the upcoming Longhorns-Baylor game via Todd Charters. Todd Charters has been offering this bus service to selected women's basketball away games the past several years.
The No. 19 Longhorns have embarked on a three-game road swing, beginning with Friday's (Dec. 30th) contest against No. 9 Rutgers (8-1) in Piscataway, NJ. Game time is 6 p.m. (Central) for that Top 25 match up.
