Kabongo leads Texas as the Longhorns beat Oklahoma State 58-49

With J’Covan Brown nursing an ankle injury, the team would have to rely on others to take charge in Saturday’s game against Oklahoma State.  While Brown did play 25 minutes on the floor, he scored only 6 points and was 2-4 in shooting.   Brown’s presence certainly made way for others to score, like Myck Kabongo, who led Texas in scoring with 15 points.  Kabongo played a fantastic game which included great defense and six assists.  Barnes and company liked what they saw in Kabongo’s game last night,  as did Texas fans – Leadership from a freshman player is just what coaches want to see.  Another Freshman, Jonathan Holmes came off the bench to score 11 points which was second only to Kabongo’s 15.  The Longhorns played well enough to notch the victory, but Oklahoma State did not do itself any favors.  The Cowboys turned the ball over 21 times compared to Texas’ 10 turnovers.

Texas notches its first conference win and improves to 11-4 (including a perfect 10-0 record at home this year).  The Longhorns continue conference play against the Aggies on Wednesday night at the Erwin Center in Austin.
