As such, Texas wasted career-best performances from Kerwin Roach (26 points) and Matt Coleman (25 points). The loss drops Shaka Smart to 50-50 thru three seasons in Austin. This year was especially trying when you factor in Andrew Jones being diagnosed with leukemia and Eric Davis sitting out the end of the season amid allegedly receiving impermissible benefits as revealed in the FBI documents. If the tune of highly touted NBA prospects not correlating to postseason success sounds all too familiar for Texas, it’s because it is. In this sense, Bamba is merely a statistic.
