Buddy Hield did what money players do on Monday night when he hit the game-winning 23-foot contested 3-pointer to beat No. 24 Texas.
After Shaka Smart’s determined Longhorns had put the clamps on the presumptive national player of the year for most of the night, the Bahamian Baller wisely began converting on drives to the basket.
And it was that threat that allowed Hield to put Texas’ best player, Isaiah Taylor, on his heals on the game-deciding play.
Thirty minutes after the game, I interviewed Hield.
