Mohamed Bamba made his competitive debut for Texas, but another freshman stole the show as the Longhorns opened their four-game Australian tour Tuesday morning.
Jericho Sims, a 6-foot-8 forward from Minneapolis, introduced himself with a thunderous dunk in the 96-84 exhibition win over the Dandenong Rangers. Watch the play below.

Sophomore guard Andrew Jones led Texas with 16 points, while 6-9 junior forward Dylan Osetkowski flashed some range by nailing three 3-pointers as part of a 15-point effort. Bamba was also impressive in his debut, dropping 14 points in limited action.
Dandenong plays in the Australian State League, one level below Australia’s top professional league. The Longhorns are back in action 4 a.m. Wednesday against Melbourne United.
