The Texas Longhorns basketball team’s star, Timmy Allen, sustained a leg injury at the later stage of the regular season that pushed him out of the 2023 Big 12 tournament.
He joined the Longhorns in 2021 from Utah Utes, where he spent three years of his college career. In his freshman year, Timmy was named to the 2019 Pac-12 All-Freshman Team. However, after averaging 15.57 points in three years, he transferred to Texas.
He continued his influential performance for the Longhorns as well until the injury occurred. After further testing, a new update has come forward on his future.
What was the update on Timmy Allen?
Despite the 23-year-old’s injury, the Longhorns made their way to the championship last week by crushing Kansas. Moreover, positive news on the injury update will make the fans more cheerful.
The college authority revealed that Allen will be available for the opening game of the NCAA tournament against the Colgate Raiders.

In his first year at Texas, the small forward scored, on average, 12.1 points with 6.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game in 34 appearances.
In his fifth year of college, he is averaging 10.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game so far. However, the injury made a dent in his form, and eventually, it might affect his prospect rating for the NBA draft.
The Longhorns are eyeing the national title with their fiery performance this year, and the return of the 6.6-footer will surely boost the team’s morale.
