While the Longhorns football team has been a major disappointment, the new-look basketball program under Chris Beard has Texas fans thrilled for the upcoming season.

No. 5 Texas held a scrimmage on Monday evening where they faced off against Division III Texas Lutheran. As you would expect, the Longhorns absolutely demolished the Bulldogs, but we did get our first glimpse at how Beard plans on rotating his players in and out, while also seeing who is the current starting five.

Although he has been praised for bringing in a slew of talent via the transfer portal, Beard is now is tasked with figuring out what works for the team and what does not. In reality, the team can be about 10-12 players deep, so finding the right lineups and minutes distribution may be tough.

Here was the starting five was during yesterday’s 96-33 win over Texas Lutheran. Keep in mind that Dylan Disu will likely will be a starter for Texas this season, but is not medically cleared yet. Tre Mitchell was the second substitute off the bench, but led the team with 18 points and made his case as well.
