Myck Kabongo will be the only Longhorn looking to be selected in this year's NBA draft.

After the suspension, he returned in led the Longhorns through their 11 remaining games of the season including a career performance against Oklahoma, scoring 31 points with 28 of them coming in the second half and in overtime.
