First-year men’s basketball head coach Chris Beard is emphasizing a strong culture for the Texas Longhorns team, forward Tre Mitchell told reporters at the Northern Colorado win.
“[What we’ve shown in the first two home games] is something that we expect from each other every single day,” Mitchell said Wednesday after the game, according to 247Sports. “It’s something that’s emphasized every day in practice. We get coached every day like we’re about to play in the national championship. I think that’s what makes us special, because we have a coaching staff that pushes us and players that are willing to respond.”
