Stud: Chendall Weaver, G

This was a vintage Chendall Weaver game on both ends of the floor. The sophomore guard came up with some critical rebounds and drawn turnovers when Texas needed it in the middle of the first half and in the final 20 minutes.

Weaver was good on the glass as usual and provided a much-needed scoring boost in a game that didn't have many points scored on either side. He was all over the place for much of this game, getting loose balls and getting down the court on both ends in the blink of an eye in transition.

You could tell that Weaver was an integral piece of Terry's lineup, given the minutes he played in this game. Weaver played nearly 30 minutes off the bench in Texas's win over Colorado State, the most since the 12-point win at home over the Texas Tech Red Raiders in late February.

Weaver definitely earned the minutes he got off the bench for the Longhorns in this game. His effort and impact showed when he hit an important and-1 basket from around seven-feet from the basket to put Texas ahead by double digits late in the second half.

He finished up scoring in double figures along with four rebounds and no turnovers. But the basic stat line doesn't do the impact Weaver had on this game justice. His energy and athleticism is a major difference-maker in the postseason for the Longhorns.

As the Longhorns continue on in March Madness, Weaver will be a critical energy boost for this team coming off the bench.
