AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas has won seven in a row and had five different leading scorers during the streak.

But while the younger players might be stepping up their games, Texas is still a team that can only go as far as junior J'Covan Brown can take it. The guard's minutes have jumped from 21.5 last season to 33.6. Not surprisingly, Brown is averaging nearly nine more points a game, and taking twice as many shots. He leads the team in scoring with 19.3 points per game.
