I was in Austin in the final weeks of the Rick Barnes Era. The Longhorns weren't having fun and they didn't have any energy. Enter Smart. During one of his first practices with his team in June, he demanded a commitment to energy and toughness. And we're seeing the results now. Amazing what he's done so far.

No shame in Lammert's game

Longhorns F Connor Lammert made a long 3-pointer to give Texas a 31-22 lead over No. 3 Oklahoma going into the half on ESPN.

I saw Brandon Ingram at the Champions Classic in Chicago. Against Kentucky, he wasn't aggressive. So timid. Amazing how far he's come with his assertiveness. He's so intentional when he has the ball and he fights for loose balls in ways he did not a few months ago. His talent with a little attitude is scary.

Can't imagine what these Louisville players have been through over the last 72 hours or so. But they're not playing like a team that's given up on the season. Fighting for everything right now on the road. Says a lot about who they are and the leadership of Damion Lee and Trey Lewis.

Surprised to see so many empty seats in Cameron especially in the corners of the student section. Did Duke fans lose interest in Louisville because of the postseason ban?
