Texas essentially has a roster chock-full of mercenaries from different programs. On one hand, there was an expected adjustment in terms of gaining familiarity with one another. On the other hand, there’s a lot of talent on this roster — and it features one of College Basketball’s very best head coaches in Chris Beard.
This is the type of team who could go on a big run in the tournament if everything clicks into place. Utah transfer Timmy Allen has been UT’s best player. He’s been joined on the perimeter by Marcus Carr and Andrew Jones. Depth up front isn’t great. However, Creighton transfer Christian Bishop could turn into a huge X-Factor as a bouncy shot-blocking threat in the paint.
