Dud: Kadin Shedrick, C

For the first time this season, redshirt junior center Kadin Shedrick shows up on the dud list for the Longhorns. Shedrick got off to a great start for Terry and the Longhorns this season. But his production has slowed down a bit since super senior big man Dylan Disu made his season debut after recovering from a foot injury in Texas's double-digit win over the LSU Tigers on Dec. 16.

In the last two games, he's registered just seven points on an inefficient 2-of-8 shooting from the field, along with four rebounds, one assist, and one steal. He registered those seven points in 38 minutes on the floor.

At least Shedrick scored multiple points and knocked down a couple of field goals in the win over LSU last weekend. In this win over Texas A&M-CC, Shedrick didn't make a single field goal, registering just one point while going 1-of-2 from the charity stripe.

He averaged the fewest points per minute in this game of any Texas player who played double-digit minutes.

Shedrick clearly isn't getting as many touches, as many easy finishes around the rim, and/or as much playing time as he got while Disu was out early in the season. But he's not as effective in the minutes he is getting on the floor as he was per 40 in the last two as the previous nine outings.

Patience is necessary for Terry and staff to best figure out how to distribute the minutes in the frontcourt now that Disu is back in the mix with Shedrick.
