• Vince Young being sued for alleged assault

    Former Texas quarterback Vince Young is being sued by a woman for allegedly assaulting and pulling her hair during a car ride back from a 2014 NCAA Tournament game, according to TMZ Sports.

    The woman, Tiffany Cayo, described Young as “extremely intoxicated” and claims the incident cost her medical expenses and lost wages. She is seeking $250,000 in damages.

    Young’s attorney said the former quarterback will file a lawsuit for defamation in response and that “Ms. Cayo’s claims will be roundly disproved and Mr. Young will be vindicated in all respects.”

    “Mr. Young’s counsel presented the results of the investigation to Ms. Cayo’s counsel in early 2015,” the attorney said in a statement to Horns Digest. “Now, two years after this alleged incident and over a year after being informed that there was clear and unequivocal witness testimony contradicting Ms. Cayo’s allegations, Ms. Cayo and her counsel have brought this frivolous lawsuit in a clear attempt to extract money from Mr. Young.”

  • No. 21 Texas travels to Baylor

    No. 21 Texas (15–6) will travel to Waco on Tuesday to take on Baylor, after five consecutive home matches.

    Last weekend the Longhorns knocked off UTSA in a double header, taking the afternoon match 5-2 and sweeping the second contest 4-0 for their 11th victory in 12 matches.

    Freshman Harrison Scott, who remains ranked No. 113 in singles, has won seven of his last nine singles matches with two coming over ranked opponents. This past weekend, Scott defeated UTSA senior Diogo Casa in straight sets. Scott is now 21–8 overall for this season.

    Senior Michael Riechmann and sophomore Adrian Ortiz are featured at No. 61 in the latest ITA doubles rankings, but the duo did not play together in Texas’ most recent match against UTSA.

    Match play will begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday at Baylor.
