Texas to be without Disu for matchup vs. Canes

Texas big man Dylan Disu has been ruled out for the Longhorns’ Elite Eight matchup against Miami because of a foot injury.

Disu averaged 22.5 points in the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament but because of the injury missed all but 2 minutes of his team’s 83-71 win over Xavier in the Sweet 16 on Friday.

Disu suffered the injury against Penn State in the second round.

Disu has made an impact on a Texas team that has connected on 54% of its shots inside the arc this season with Disu on the floor, per hooplens.com.

Texas acting head coach Rodney Terry had said that he would use a committee to replace Disu if he couldn’t play against the Hurricanes.

“It could be [Brock Cunningham] . It could be, obviously, [Christian Bishop] ; [he] played really well for us. Timmy Allen had to play a little more inside for us, as well. I always say to our guys, ‘We’re all we need. We’re all we got.’ You know what I mean? We’ll find somebody ready to go, and we’ll band together like brothers and we’ll go out and compete against a really, really good Miami team,” he said.

Information from ESPN’s Myron Medcalf was used in this report.
