Texas, one of the most powerful conferences in college basketball, has been around for decades.
It has a national profile, is home to two NBA teams, and has produced some of the best players in college hoops history.
Now, with three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances under its belt, Texas has a legitimate chance at becoming a laughing stock.
Last year, the Longhorns were able to get into the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2010-11.
The Longhorns lost to No. 1 seed Baylor in the first round, but they had the most wins of any team in the tournament, defeating six opponents that went on to play in the NCAA Championship.
While that was a tremendous feat, the Texas squad was a joke.
The offense was mediocre and its defense was bad.
The defense and offense were similar to what the Longhorn team was built to be.
It was one of those games where a team was on the ropes and the other team had a chance to win, and the Longhoos had no answer for the other teams best player.
The Big 12 has been in a downward spiral since the beginning of the 2020-21 season.
It will be interesting to see how much of an impact this new crop of recruits will have in the league, but this year’s crop of freshmen is a huge upgrade over last year’s group of freshmen.
Texas has two new freshmen this season: freshman point guard Jordan Hicks, a 6-foot-9, 200-pound shooting guard, and sophomore center Austin Rivers, a 5-foot, 11-inch power forward.
Rivers has averaged 15.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks in two games so far this season.
Hicks has played in just two games this season and is averaging 12.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.3 steals.
It would be a shame to see Hicks go, but the Longhos have another promising freshman on their roster.
6-10 forward Malik Newman is a 6’9 shooting guard that has a knack for making jump shots and is a skilled athlete.
Newman is averaging 8.5 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, and 0.6 blocks in three games this year.
His teammates say that he is an underrated player and he should be able to develop into a solid player.
Newman has the potential to be a first round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, and it looks like the Longhoms front office is looking for a new point guard in the 2018 NBA Draft.
Newman will be a very valuable addition to the Longhogs roster this season, but it will be hard to find any better talent in the 2017 class.
The biggest question heading into the 2018-19 season will be the Longhoo offense.
Texas needs to replace one of its top scorers in Austin Rivers with a true point guard, but that will not be easy.
The recruiting class is stacked with talented players, and Texas needs more depth at the point guard position.
If Newman can get off to a great start this season in Austin, then he will be able develop into an NBA caliber player in the future.
The 2018-2019 season is a rebuilding year for the Longhods basketball team.
Texas was able to make some major changes in the offseason and the NCAA tournament.
The addition of a talented new point guards talent in Austin is the biggest change that Texas made to its program.
However, the 2017-2018 season was also a rebuilding season for the team.
The hiring of coach Scott Drew is a step in the right direction for Texas basketball, but he will have a lot of rebuilding to do if he wants to get back to winning basketball.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the Big 8.1.
