Longhorns Center Cameron Ridley Wins the Battle of the Bigs Against Joel Embiid

One of the most talked about players this season in college basketball has been Kansas Jayhawks center Joel Emdiid. The big man has been a key member of one of the best teams in the nation, but when he faced off against Cameron Ridley and the rest of the Texas Longhorns Saturday--

He ended up being just another guy.

To be fair, he had a solid game with eight points and 10 rebounds. His counterpart, Cameron Ridley, also pulled down 10 boards, but scored nine points. So how can I name Ridley the winner of the Battle of the Bigs?

It wasn't a matter of what he or Embiid did, but how he did it. Ridley simply out-muscled him and made use of the 35 pounds he has on Embiid to get the job done!
With their fourth win in a row over a ranked team it's safe to say that the Longhorns are on the right track. The rest of the Big 12 might want to watch out!

Final Score: Texas 81 Kansas 69
