Texas head coach Chris Beard looks out from a huddle during an exhibition game between Texas and Texas Lutheran at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas on Nov. 1, 2021. Texas defeated Texas Lutheran 96-33.

In the game, Texas shot 57.1% from the floor and forced 25 turnovers. The way Chris Beard reads the stat sheet, the Horns had 21 assists and four turnovers and won the rebounding battle 38-28.

Texas forced three consecutive turnovers in the first three minutes. Then came another “kill,” which is three defensive stops, as Tre Mitchell scored on the other end and Jase Febres hit a wide-open 3-pointer. Mitchell scored twice on back-to-back possessions, and the Horns were off and running with a 22-8 lead.
