AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Longhorns are rebuilding once again.

All five starters from last year were either picked off by the NBA draft or ran out of eligibility. Texas is down to nine recruited scholarship players and six of them are freshmen.

Coach Rick Barnes will be relying on junior guard J'Covan (juh-COE'-vin) Brown to lead the Longhorns back to the NCAA tournament for the 14th straight season.

Texas opens the season Nov. 13 at home against Boston with key non-conference games at UCLA and North Carolina in December.
