From the University of Houston’s loss at the buzzer to Michigan, to Texas A&M’s rout of the defending champion North Carolina Tar Heels, there was plenty of heartbreak and excitement for Texas teams this weekend in the NCAA Tournament.

Plus, the Astros are giving Jose Altuve a new contract. The Texans signed safety Tyrann Mathieu. And Colin Kaepernick was in town for a legal deposition.
