In the aftermath of another conference loss for the Texas Longhorns, head coach Shaka Smart said that he isn’t sure whether leading scorer Tevin Mack, a sophomore wing, will return to the team this season.
According to the second-year head coach, Mack is not practicing with the ‘Horns and was not on the bench during Saturday’s close loss to West Virginia.
The 6’7, 220-pounder is indefinitely suspended for a violation of team rules, but Smart said that it wasn’t a violation of university policy, it was his decision.
During the offseason, Mack also violated team rules, leading to a three-game suspension to start the season, raising questions about how much margin of error he has now with Smart — it seems that his Longhorns career hangs in the balance.
Mack was leading the team in minutes played and points per game (14.8) prior to his suspension.
