Special night for Shaka Smart
When Texas plays its first road game of the season Tuesday night, it will be a strange atmosphere for everyone involved. Especially Longhorns coach Shaka Smart, who will be the center of everyone’s attention inside the Siegel Center at Virginia Commonwealth, where he coached from 2009-2015.
