Texas forward Timmy Allen discusses team-first mentality
It’s all about the team for Texas basketball players heading into the NCAA Tournament. These Longhorns aren’t concerned so much with who makes the game-deciding play as they are that the team wins.
Texas forward Timmy Allen said as much in his media availability ahead of the NCAA Tournament.
It’s just amazing to watch them… the camaraderie we have, the selflessness and how we’re not worried about who gets it done. It’s just about getting it done.
Allen’s team-first mentality is apparent to anyone who saw the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City. Multiple times the camera panned to Allen rooting on his team to a Big 12 Tournament Championship. Now he’ll get to make an impact on the court.
What makes Texas so dangerous is its ability to make baskets through multiple avenues. Dylan Disu has seemingly been automatic at times in mid-range baskets. Sir’Jabari Rice has been the Longhorns most reliable three-point shooter in awhile. Allen and Marcus Carr add in baskets in their own variety of ways.
Texas will lean on its four-headed monster for baskets as it makes a push for a deep tournament run.
There's been a lot of talk about how #Texas doesn't have THE guy on this roster, but I feel like @timmybuckets35's answer sums up why this team doesn't need one #HookEm #MarchMadness
