Stud: Chendall Weaver, G

Usually, when Terry and the Longhorns need a secondary source of scoring outside of the common suspects in Disu and Abmas, it's been someone like sophomore forward Dillon Mitchell or Hunter that's stepped up.

But more often down the stretch in Big 12 play, we're seeing sophomore guard Chendall Weaver step up in different situations where the Longhorns need him to on both ends of the floor. That was especially the case in this game as Weaver was clutch on both ends for Texas tonight.

Weaver made a big play when he blocked a breakaway layup attempt by Isaacs when the Red Raiders were trying to cut down Texas's double-digit lead in the second half. He also gave the Longhorns a much-needed bucket when the offense was drying up late in the second half from mid-range.

The offensive production was the biggest storyline in this game for Weaver. He was insanely-clutch from the free-throw line, nailing a season-high nine free throws on 11 attempts against Texas Tech. Along with shooting 3-of-7 from the field, Weaver tied a season-high with 15 points.

Weaver was also big on the boards for the Longhorns, helping Texas demolish the Red Raiders in the battle on the glass. He had a season-high eight rebounds, including two offensive boards.

To round out the two-way contributions Weaver gave the Longhorns in this game, he had one steal and one block.

This was truly a complete effort by Weaver to help the Longhorns secure a big double-digit win on the road against a Quad 1 opponent in Texas Tech.
