      Wow, what a great article. I knew about the team and the perfect season, but not all the little stuff behind it. It was a fun read for a basketball freak like me. :D Thanks!

      That same year, the "Don't Mess with Texas" antilitter campaign hit the state, and the Lady Longhorns quickly adopted the slogan. Their pictures in the programs had team members wearing "Don't Mess with Texas" T-shirts, and a couple of times during the season, there were "Don't Mess with Texas" game nights. Two wonderfully successful programs in one year for Texas. What a time it was!
