Dud: Max Abmas, G

For the first time this season, the dud on this list came down to Disu and Abmas. Texas's two top scorers during the regular season had trouble finding their rhythm shooting from the field and from beyond the arc for most of this game against Colorado State.

Disu and Abmas both had their respective highlights and key plays to help Texas get over the hump with this convincing first round win over the Rams. Abmas had a crazy buzzer-beating three-pointer that he hit from the logo just before halftime to give Texas a 16-point lead.

Disu also found his scoring groove in clutch time in the second half to help Texas put the game away in the final few minutes. Despite going just 1-of-8 from the field in the first half, Disu got in a rhythm in the second half with four made field goals while scoring in the double figures in the final 20 minutes.

Abmas, meanwhile, wasn't able to get going consistently on the offensive end in this game. He finished up shooting below 35 percent from the field and just over 15 percent from deep.

And for the first time since non-conference play, Abmas was held to one or zero assists.

On the defensive end of the floor, Abmas didn't have his best showing either. He didn't register a single assist or block and was slow on a few key close outs that resulted in made three-pointers and/or deep twos for Colorado State in the second half.

Nonetheless, I fully expect Abmas to bounce back strongly in the Round of 32 for the Longhorns. He's too good of a scorer to be held down for too long.
