Floor spacing

While Disu is having an impressive redshirt senior campaign this season in many regards, maybe the most awe-inspiring is the shooting efficiency he's displayed in Big 12 play.

Disu seemingly can't miss from the field, regardless of which of the three levels of the offensive halfcourt he's pulling up from. He has a lethal floater, an effective mid-range jump shot, and can make three-pointers at a high clip regardless of whether he's open or taking a contested shot.

What has really made the difference for Texas's offense this season with Disu is his ability to stretch the floor. Disu has truly taken his outside shooting to largely unseen heights in the Big 12 this season.

He not only leads the Big 12 in three-point shooting percentage this season and in conference play (over 53 percent), but he is doing so on a sizable volume of attempts (roughly five per game).

Disu is on a record-breaking pace this season with his three-point field goal percentage. He's on pace to be the first non-guard player in the Big 12 to shoot over 50 percent from beyond the arc on over three attempts per game in conference play.

His ability to knock down threes has been crucial for the success that Texas has found in conference play this year. Disu has made multiple three-point field goals in all five of Texas's wins in the Big 12 this season, including a career-high seven in the dominant 36-point win over the West Virginia Mountaineers on Feb. 10 at the Moody Center.
