Roach notched 10 points (2-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, four rebounds, two blocks, and a steal in the win over Purdue on Sunday.
Roach missed the first game of the season, but the eight games he has played have gone in two different directions. In the first four he averaged 19.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 2.5 steals while shooting 48 percent from the field. In the last four contests, however, Roach is averaging just 9.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.0 steals while shooting a horrid 20 percent from the field. Had it not been for a huge game from Matt Coleman on Sunday, the Longhorns would have been 0-4 over that stretch. Roach's play is very important for this team, so they will need him to be better soon with conference play coming up in three games. Texas will host Grand Canyon on Saturday.
