As Texas basketball ends it’s regular season, their seems to be one consistent theme I have heard in the past 36 hours.

Relief that it is over.

Let’s be honest, the season ended November 19th against Chaminade. I attended the opening game at the Frank Erwin Center against Fresno State. Texas struggled all game and were lucky to pull out a 55-53 win. Fresno State finished 11-19. The only win that Texas was able to get in Maui was against Mississippi State, a team so bad they lost to Alabama…….A&M University.

North Carolina was a potential bright spot but that blew up in Texas’s face. Not to mention comeback wins against Iowa State and Oklahoma. The Texas basketball team could not find that mojo and go on a 4 or 5 game winning streak.

So what should Texas basketball do in the offseason? 

1. Get Myck Kabongo back

Yes he is inconsistent and he might not bring it every night. That doesn’t matter. He has the most talent and athleticism on this Texas team. Ioannis Papapetrou will be a star and I think Javan Felix can turn into a great point guard. Everyone on this team shows the promise of being an elite college basketball player. Myck Kabongo is that glue that can help built this basketball team to not only an NCAA team, but a Sweet 16 team.
