Stud: Dylan Disu, C

The team MVP in conference play for the Longhorns, Disu, came up with another big-time performance on both ends of the floor in this convincing win over Oklahoma State.

Disu helped spark the offense early for the Longhorns, scoring seven points in the game's first 10 minutes. He finished up with a game-high 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting from the field, 2-of-6 from beyond the arc, and 1-of-1 from the free-throw line.

This wasn't Disu's most efficient shooting performance, but he still showed that he can get the job done on the offensive end in other ways. He did a nice job seeing the court and distributing the basketball to find open teammates.

Disu tied a season-high with five dimes and just two turnovers in this win over the Pokes.

The senior big man also gave the Longhorns a boost on the offensive glass. He was one of four Longhorns players to register multiple offensive boards in this game.

On the defensive end, Disu was also a big part of Texas holding Oklahoma State well under 70 points while winning the points in the paint battle by a margin of 10. Disu held his own down low, registering one block and one steal that resulted in transition points for the Longhorns.

Since Disu was held to single-digit points in the double-digit loss to the No. 9 Kansas Jayhawks last weekend, he's been brilliant. He's averaged 19 points per game, six rebounds, and four assists in the last two outings for the Longhorns.
