Shaka Smart will begin his second year as head coach for the longhorns, leading a team that lost top scorer and team captain Isaiah Taylor to the NBA draft last season. Fortunately for Smart, he signed a top 5 class led by 5 star power forward, Jarrett Allen. The Horns will be without Kerwin Roach and Tevin Mack after Smart suspended the two prior to the Angelo State exhibition match for undisclosed violation of team rules, so expect upperclassmen Kendall Yancy and Shaquille Claire to step up for the season opener.

The Horns tip off at 7 p.m. central at the Frank Erwin Center this Friday.
