In his 14th year as the Longhorns’ head coach, Rick Barnes hopes to lead his team to its 14th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance with on-the-court prowess, which was further honed during a rigorous series of off-season workouts. Junior guard J’Covan Brown leads the team in scoring, starting the season with an average of 29.3 points per game, a 50.9% field-goal percentage, and the envious respect of opposing teams’ fathers. Freshman forward Jonathan Holmes has punished fouls in fine fashion with a 13–14 free-throw record, and first-year guard Julien Lewis has started his Longhorns tenure in long-range style with a 47% three-point percentage. The Frank Erwin Center hosts basket-sinking contests in a capacious interior, with video boards blasting crowd-riling replays and delectable concessions replacing any calories lost while attempting behind-the-back free throws.
