Texas coach Shaka Smart anxious to see where Bamba goes

More Than the Score

Texas basketball will have its second NBA lottery pick in as many years when center Mo Bamba’s name is called Thursday night.

The one-and-done player is projected to go somewhere in the top five with many experts predicting the Dallas Mavericks to draft the potential superstar with the fifth pick.

Bamba spent a season with the Longhorns helping Texas to the NCAA Tournament after missing out in 2017.

Texas head coach Shaka Smart met with the media this week to discuss his highly-touted big man and come to his defense in the eyes of some critics.
