Longhorns need help from Lake Travis ASAP; Shaka Smart’s squad ready to impress

Posted November 13th, 2017


Good morning and welcome to Breakfast with Bevo, your morning stop for Texas Longhorns news and notes. Check us out every weekday morning for everything you need to know about Texas football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Could a Cavalier rescue the Longhorns in 2018?

The Austin American-Statesman’s Brian Davis makes the argument that the most important signing for Tom Herman in the 2018 recruiting class is also the most unheralded. Lake Travis’ kicker Cameron Dicker’s skill set is sorely needed by the Longhorns after yet another missed field goal attempt on Saturday against Kansas. He is considered the No. 1 recruit in the nation at his position.

On Saturday, yet another defensive back scored a touchdown on an interception return this season. With five of them spread over three players, the Longhorns defense is providing a spark to the scoring even when the offense is sputtering. The Austin American-Statesman’s Danny Davis points out that total ties a school record set in 1987 and matched in 2000. That total is also only three fewer touchdowns than the Texas wide receivers have this year.

Guard Lashann Higgs scored 18 points, Brooke McCarty had 14, and the Longhorns posted a 51-25 advantage on the boards in a resounding 95-59 season-opening victory over Stetson at the Erwin Center.

Newcomer Jatarie White led all players with nine rebounds and junior forward Jordan Hosey chipped in a career-high 13 points.

Shaka Smart’s squad ready to impress

After Texas’ 105-59 dismantling of Northwestern State on Friday, the Austin American-Statesman’s Cedric Golden argues that this Longhorns team is coach Shaka Smart’s best one yet. It features a rotation that goes nine deep,  including soon-to-be one-and-done big man Mo Bamba, point forward/Swiss army knife Dylan Osetkowski and freshman point guard Matt Coleman.
