Gator basketball players who played in western Kentucky this summer have been awarded a scholarship at the University of Texas, where they will be eligible for the NCAA Tournament.
In a statement issued Wednesday, the University confirmed that players Dwayne Haggart, Dwayne Smith, and Isaiah Thomas will be granted scholarships at the UT-Austin campus.
UT’s basketball program is one of just a handful of programs to be awarded a full scholarship to any of the players.
The university says the scholarships are contingent on the players passing a physical and remaining on campus.
The players will play at the Austin Lobo this season, which will take place March 17.
