AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas Men's Basketball team is ranked No. 18 in The Associated Press' Preseason Top 25, the wire service announced Monday. The Longhorns are one of four Big 12 Conference teams selected in The AP preseason Top 25, as Kansas is No. 1, Houston is No. 7 and Baylor is No. 20.

UT has now made 20 appearances in school history in The AP preseason poll. Texas was tabbed No. 6 in 1978-79, No. 22 in 1990-91, No. 16 in 1996-97, No. 22 in 1997-98, No. 21 in 1999-2000, No. 23 in 2001-02, No. 4 in 2002-03, No. 12 in 2003-04, No. 16 in 2004-05, No. 2 in 2005-06, No. 21 in 2006-07, No. 15 in 2007-08, No. 7 in 2008-09, No. 3 in 2009-10, No. 10 in 2014-15, No. 21 in 2016-17, No. 19 in 2020-21, No. 5 in 2021-22 and No. 12 last season.

Texas returns four rotational players (Brock CunninghamDylan DisuTyrese Hunter and Dillon Mitchell) from Rodney Terry's first season in Austin, when the Longhorns posted an overall record of 29-9 (12-6 Big 12, second) and ranked No. 5 in the final Associated Press poll and No. 7 in the final USA TODAY Sports Coaches poll. The No. 5 spot marked a tie for the highest ranking in the final AP poll by the Longhorns, as UT also was No. 5 in the final AP poll during the 2002-03 Final Four season. The No. 7 spot marked the third-highest ranking in the final Coaches poll in program history and highest since a No. 5 ranking following the 2007-08 season.

The Longhorns advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight for the first time since 2008 and eighth time in program history. UT captured its second Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship title in program history, defeating No. 3 Kansas, 76-56, in the championship game in Kansas City, Mo. The Longhorns earned a No. 2 seed in the 2023 NCAA Tournament, marking the highest seed for Texas in the NCAA tourney since 2008 (also a No. 2 seed).

The 29 wins were the third-most in a single season in program history, as UT went 31-7 in 2007-08 and 30-7 in 2005-06. The Longhorns compiled a 10-7 record against AP Top 25 opponents in 2022-23, and the 10 wins were the most in the nation against AP-ranked foes. The 10 wins against AP-ranked opponents also set a school single-season record, as UT previously went 8-5 in 2003-04. Texas posted a 6-3 mark against AP Top 11 foes during the 2022-23 season and tied a program single-season record for most games played (38).

Texas tips off the 2023-24 season with the Orange-White Scrimmage on Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 6 p.m. Central inside Gregory Gymnasium in the heart of the UT campus. The Longhorns host an exhibition contest against St. Edward's University on Monday, Oct. 30. Tip is set for 7 p.m. Central at Moody Center, and the game will be televised by Longhorn Network.
