A young Texas squad will continue to look for leadership when the Longhorns host Alabama on Friday. Longhorns coach Shaka Smart said his team needs someone to step forward when things go bad, as they did in the program’s first-ever loss to Texas-Arlington on Tuesday.

“You need a guy or two to step forward and say ‘this is not going to happen like this,'” Smart said after the loss. “We’re in a process of figuring out who that is. It’s not an excuse, it’s just kind of where we are right now.” Texas struggled offensively and is averaging 57.7 points during a three-game losing streak. Two young players are leading a balanced Alabama attack as the Crimson Tide prepare for their first true road game. Freshman forward Braxton Key is averaging 15 points at 66.7 percent shooting, four assists and two blocks in back-to-back starts.

Texas lost its last outing, a 72-61 result against Mavericks on November 29. They failed to cover in that game as a -8-point favorite.

Alabama was a 76-46 winner in their most recent outing at home against Buccaneers. They covered the -16-point spread as favorites.
