Kansas' Tyshawn Taylor Says The Jayhawks Must Slow Down Texas Guard J'Covan Brown

Today’s match-up between the Kansas Jayhawks and the Texas Longhorns feature some of the best and the brightest in the Big 12. While Tyshawn Taylor just dropped 28 points during a breakout performance in a major win over the Baylor Bears earlier this week, even the Jayhawks’ guard says that he’s in awe of J’Covan Brown’s play for UT.

“That boy can play, so we just have to stay tuned in," said Taylor. "He’s always played good against us and we just have to try and contain him. He’s going to score. He takes tough shots and makes them, so we just have to slow him down and contain the other players.”

The Longhorns have lost two in a row and the Jayhawks have won eight in a row, so the Longhorns are definitely facing an uphill climb to change the momentum of both teams. If they are able to do so, it will likely be because Brown was able to take the game over in the backcourt. Thus far, the junior guard is averaging 19.2 points per game with 3.8 assists and 3.4 rebounds.
