Despite substandard results on the hardwood from the Longhorn basketball program in the last five seasons, they continue to thrive on the one night the NBA holds its amateur draft.

We talk to some of the top recruits in attendance, a couple new offers, and keeping tabs on back-up plans for the UT staff in the Scoop.
