Myck Kabongo Keeps Improving For Texas
The Texas Longhorns had a solid home victory over tough Atlantic-10 opponent Temple, winning 77-65. Junior guard J'Covan Brown scored 23 points to lead the team and they got another solid performance out of freshman PG Myck Kabongo. The 6'1 lightning fast Canadian import was seen as one of the top PG's in last years HS Class, but struggled with turnovers and poor shooting to begin the season. In Texas' last few games, however, Kabongo has been living up to expectations as a talented floor general. He had 18 points as the Longhorns are now 8-2. Next up will be a major test against North Carolina. We will see if Kabongo can continue his recent play, or if UNC brings to life his early season struggles.
