Bracket projection: Texas

Texas has a golden opportunity (0:29)

Joe Lunardi says tenth seed Texas has a 50/50 chance against seventh seed Nevada. (0:29)

Shaka Smart won't get many coach of the year votes, but the job he did keeping the Texas Longhorns together and getting this team to the NCAA tournament should be commended. The horrible news that guard Andrew Jones was diagnosed with leukemia came in January. About a month later, another guard Eric Davis Jr. was suspended as part of the ongoing FBI investigation into the sport. An injury to Mo Bamba at the end of the season left the status of Smart's best player in jeopardy. The Longhorns endured the storm, which included seven overtime games (3-4), to reach the tournament, but do they have anything left in the tank?
