Dud: Brock Cunningham, F

After a couple of impressive performances in a row that garnered super senior forward Brock Cunningham two straight stud nods for the Longhorns, he had a bit of an off night in the win over UNCG.

Cunningham wasn't able to find his shooting stroke in this one, going 0-of-5 from the field and 0-of-4 from beyond the arc. This, unfortunately, comes after Cunningham registered his first double-digit point performance of the season in the double-digit victory over the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders at home on Dec. 22.

This is the first time that Cunningham has shot zero percent on over three attempts from beyond the arc in his collegiate career.

I think that stat is more of a testament to Cunningham's consistency and shooting efficiency from beyond the arc in the last few years at Texas than it is an indictment on his performance in this win over UNCG.

Cunningham also had trouble taking care of the basketball in this game, as he registered two turnovers and just one assist.

The positive to this outing for Cunningham is that he registered a team-high four offensive rebounds, including two in one possession. Cunningham was very active on the glass, especially on the offensive end of the floor. He helped the Longhorns win the battle on the boards by a margin of 39-32.
