And there was a special welcome for Smart and Phil Forte, who played at Flower Mound Marcus High School just north of Dallas. They, too, had a big following of friends and family who made their presence known during the pregame introductions and throughout the game.
“I think half of Marcus High School was here tonight,” said Cowboys Travis Ford. “They all bought tickets.”
Nash had his own following, and they let themselves be heard — along with the other Cowboys fans who numbered at least half of the estimated 4,000 in attendance — saluting him loudest when he checked out of the game with 1:49 remaining.
And for good reason, with TCU offering no answer to stop him.
“Well, he's bigger. He's stronger. He's quicker. And he's got more of a skill set than anybody we have,” Johnson said. “And they do a good job of putting him in spots where he can score.”
Nash's previous career high was 27 in last year's upset of Missouri. His season high was 26, scored in the overtime win over Oklahoma two weekends ago.
“I thought Le'Bryan's performance was impressive,” Ford said. “I liked where he got his points. I liked the speed of his game. He took advantage ... because they decided they were going to lock up our guards and not help at all, which created some driving angles and created him some room and some freedom to use his skills.
“He's tough to stop if you're going to do that.”
