Playing college basketball in the NCAA Tournament is a dream that will not come true for most young basketball players across the country. For many of us, simply watching the twists and dramatic moments of March Madness is quite satisfying. The entire NCAA basketball season delivers, from the opening tip in November to the nets being cut in early April, with a new set of names forever on our hearts and lips.
While these dreams do not always come true for young players, we have seen a large number of these young players and how their basketball careers have developed. We’re doing that with our ongoing series, looking at the best college basketball players of the last decade from each state. Each state is different and has produced different types of college basketball players. States like Alaska or Hawaii haven’t exactly contributed a plethora of D1 basketball athletes, but that’s certainly not an issue today.
We’re looking at Texas today and everything is bigger in the Lone Star State. Texas has produced an incredible roster of D1 basketball players even in the last decade. Today’s article barely does it justice, and as a result, we have ten amazing basketball players on the list. Remember, this is not about the best Texas Longhorns players, although this list also has some fantastic names.
Remember, today’s article is about players whose hometowns are in the state of Texas. We are not concerned if a player attended high school or college, their hometown needs to be from the specific state covered by the article. By the time we finish our deep dive today, we will have seen some of the best basketball players in recent memory; Texas really delivered. Enough talk; let’s go straight to these ten players.
