AUSTIN, Texas -- Coming off a loss to North Carolina that shook up the team, Texas coach Rick Barnes decided to shake up the lineup for the first time this season.
But the replacements were not exactly a roll of the dice. Clint Chapman, Sheldon McClellan and Jaylen Bond had all earned significant minutes off the bench. Plus the opponent, Rice, allowed for a little tinkering. Turned out the experiment worked well enough as Texas (10-3) pulled away from Rice (9-5) midway through the second half for a 73-59 win in front of 14,506 fans at the Frank Erwin Center Saturday.
