For much of No. 4 Texas’ game at No. 14 West Virginia, Courtney Ramey drove to the rim. He drove in the first half and scored nine points, most of them in the paint. He drove toward the basket again in the second half, adding 10 points.
Shaka Smart’s Texas basketball team is ranked No. 4 in the latest AP poll following a 25-point win over the Kansas Jayhawks in Phog Allen Fieldhouse. That was Texas’ first win in Lawrence since 2011 and only their second in program history.
If 24 points and 14 rebounds during a 77-74 win over Oklahoma State did not make Greg Brown’s intentions during his time with the Texas basketball program clear, his postgame words certainly did.
Prior to the season, Texas head coach Shaka Smart fielded a question he fields every year: got anybody who can shoot? One player came to mind for the head coach entering his sixth season in Austin in Andrew Jones.
