No Longhorns player saw more than 24 minutes of action against Louisiana-Monroe and nine Texas players were on the court for at least 17 minutes in the easy 80-59 victory.On this team we do have some interchangeable parts, Texas coach Shaka Smart said after the win Monday night. We have some length and athleticism. There are a variety of guys who are playing better on the break. Were running the floor and pushing the ball. Our guys made pretty good decisions tonight.After missing the season opener because of a suspension for a violation of team rules in the offseason, Texas sophomore guard/forward Tevin Mack and sophomore guard Kerwin Roach Jr. had solid performances against Louisiana-Monroe.Mack posted a team-high 14 points (including 4 for 6 on his 3-point shots) in 23 minutes, while Roach added 11 points, four rebounds and two assists without a turnover in 22 minutes for Texas (2-0).Freshman guard Andrew Jones reached double figures in scoring (12 points) for the second straight game to start his collegiate career.Coach Smart is still teaching me as I go and Im emerging as a point guard, Jones said.

We needed to either find a way to hold them to 10 less points, or we needed to find some more scoring to keep up with them. Right now we are trying to find strengths, roles and cohesion, and we are playing very quality opponents to help figure that out.The Eagles opened the season with a 70-47 victory over Linfield on Nov. 11. They were picked to finish fifth in the Big Sky Conferences preseason poll.Were fighting up a weight class or two this week but its only going to make us better, Hayford said.
