Even With Myck Kabongo Texas Longhorns Could Not Succeed
The Texas Longhorns did not have a very Texas-like season this year, finishing with a 16-18 record. This is a team that usually competes for a Big 12 title, but this year was definitely not the case and Myck Kabongo being ineligible for a good portion of the season had a lot to do with that. However, even with Kabongo the Longhorns could not succeed.
With him in the lineup, Texas went 6-5. The obvious reason for them not playing a whole lot better with Kabongo was the simple fact that the team did not have the chemistry that it could have had if Kabongo would have started the season with the team. Anytime you throw in a new player halfway through the year the chemistry of the team is going to completely change, especially when you throw in a player that is the most talented on the team.
Kabongo is clearly a good player and his 14.6 points per game, five rebounds per game and 5.5 assists per game was pretty good for not playing for most of the season with Texas. Not to mention, he was only a sophomore this year.
Kabongo did not show his full potential in a Longhorns uniform, but hopefully he can show is worth at the next level, especially when he is actually allowed to play a full season.
