Same problems see Texas Basketball exit the big dance

Texas Basketball were given a gift by the NCAA, and that gift was a spot in the NCAA Tournament. What did Texas do with this gift? They played the exact same kind of basketball that led to their regular season mediocrity, in a 56-48 loss to Butler. When watching the Longhorns on offense it can be cringeworthy at times. So much of the offense relies on what Isaiah Taylor can create...

Texas has had a Jekyll-and-Hyde season but the Longhorns are leading No. 8 Kansas in the second half on the road right now.
