    Shaka was hired you’d think because of his ability to coax solid guard play out of unheralded and not the most skilled guards. The whole havoc thing.

    It’s problematic that guard play at Texas has been horrible in his time here.

    Certainly true - it doesn't seem like we do any of the havoc stuff at all, but I didn't ever watch VCU on a regular basis, so maybe what they did in the tourneys was not their norm. That said, I actually think he had really talented guards at VCU. I'm more surprised that top big men like Bamba would want to come to Texas, and also very surprised that he hasn't been able to recruit better guards. Seems like, from what I had seen previously, his style was built around emphasizing great guard play.

    Akeem did the same thing, took him a while to learn not to volleyball it.

    UT's outside shooting is their only weakness. And it's a big one.

    FWIW, Duke just came back from down 17 with 10 minutes to go against #7 Florida today, so it wasn't just us.

    Shaka is a dead man walking. Tim Beck could run a better offense.

    Maybe Shaka should stop it with this "havoc" and "rely on effort and energy" BS and recruit someone who can make a three for ****s sake.

    driving to the lane gets hard when nobody can shoot.

    Didn't watch. How much did they, if at all, run the 3 bigs lineup they've been talking about?

    Having their best outside guy injured doesn't help, since they don't have any outside guys. Lots of athletes though.

    Coleman is a solid guard. Where are the shooters?

    Damn, well **** basketball, there are more important things. Get well Andrew Jones. I thought Jones and Febres would be the solution to the outside shooting problem by the end of the season.

    What a basketball game! TCU and Texas both brought everything they had for this one.
