Early on, the No. 2 Gonzaga and No. 11 Texas college basketball

 matchup has brought the goodies and the unexpected. 

It was all Texas in the first half of just the second ranked-vs-ranked contest

of the young season, with the Longhorns leading 47-37 at the break.

Five different Longhorns made at least 

 one 3-pointer in the first quarter as Texas'

shooting improved after a sluggish start to the game.

 Layoffs and hiring freezes will not be a part of such cost reductions.
