Should I have called it first game preview? Probably. But the idea is that we’re past that garbage and, really, if Texas loses to ACU, then we’ll all have bigger problems than some overzealous preview story by me.
After a back and forth first half, Tech's double digit second half lead proved too much for the Longhorns as a series of poor shot selection doomed any hopes of a road W in what was a must win for the Red Raiders.
The offensive struggles Texas has had under Shaka (and they're considerable) being pushed to the side a bit, my number one criticism with Shaka at Texas has been his issues with personnel and rotation decisions.
Every forward returning in Shaka Smart’s program played a role during the 2019-20 season. Some had impressive early stretches, others found a rhythm as conference play began, and a few more surged when injuries piled up late in the year.
