Texas upset again as Smart fails to recapture March glory
(AP Photo/Mark Humphrey)INDIANAPOLIS – Shaka Smart pulled off one of the most memorable Cinderella runs in NCAA Tournament history, taking VCU from the First Four to the Final Four in 2011. But as Texas coach, Smart is 1-3 in three tournament appearances during his six seasons. Texas was bounced from the NCAA Tournament as a No. He seemed like a slam dunk hire in 2015 after he had turned VCU into an NCAA Tournament regular. “Really feel for our guys right now because up until tonight we had a phenomenal season,” Smart said.
