The struggles of the Texas men's basketball team this year have been well documented. With the youngest roster in the country, the Horns are relying on players who have never in this position before to try and turn around the season, and somehow extend the team's run of postseason appearances.
The situation Texas finds itself in is not just to the players. It's new for Rick Barnes, who in 14 seasons at Texas has never missed the NCAA tournament. His streak extends even further than that...Barnes has made it 17 straight years as a head coach, dating back to his years at Clemson. So managing this year's struggles is a new obstacle for Barnes.
