Some things remain normal in Texas' capital city. Once again, Texas head coach Shaka Smart’s job status is a hot topic of discussion among Longhorn fans. Once again, UT men’s basketball supporters will be treated to one year of a NBA Draft lottery pick after blue-chip forward Greg Brown III’s decision to play at Texas.
What is the staff teaching in its online coaching clinics? Where do things stand with Texas for a corner recently released from his LOI from a Big 12 school? What's the latest info on Greg Brown III's decision day? All in the Humidor.
With the cancellation of the NCAA Tournament, the 2019-20 men’s college basketball season is over. Shaka Smart’s Texas Longhorns were set to duel Texas Tech in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament in what would likely have served as a de facto play-in game to make the field of 68 until the Big 12 pulled them off the floor, and sports as a whole came to a halt.
For the 2019-20 season, Texas shot 35 percent from three. Over the five games the Longhorns won leading up to Oklahoma State, UT shot 43.6 percent from behind the arc. Against the Cowboys on Saturday, Texas missed 24 of its 29 three-point attempts.
An 81-52 loss at Iowa State on February 15 appeared to leave the Texas Longhorns’ NCAA Tournament hopes for dead. Losing to a middling team without its best player not only added another loss to Texas’ record and dropped them to 4-8 in conference, but it was also a demoralizing defeat.
