AUSTIN — The Longhorns are looking for ‘Level Five Juice’ all the time.

It’s a saying head coach Shaka Smart came up with, and the Texas Men’s Basketball team has totally embraced trying to level up all the way the rest of the season.

“Our identity is just our juice,” freshman Jaxson Hayes told Horns Illustrated. “It’s our energy. The energy we bring to the game — so we have a level five juice, which is the highest you can have. It’s some stuff that really our team knows, but the level five juice is us when we’re us at our best.”

Fellow freshman Courtney Ramey agreed, embracing the inspirations Smart comes up with to inspire the team.
