North Texas Is Not The Best Basketball Team In CUSA

Was that headline controversial? It should not be. NT has a good basketball team, but no one who follows this league closely thought that NT had the best squad. WKU is über-talented, ODU is well-coached and physically imposing, and Marshall are the reigning tourney champs. NT dropped a big road game in Norfolk tonight, and… Read more »

North Texas wins 76-75, Come Back From Down 16

Sometime during the initial five minutes of the game, I tweeted that North Texas could blow this thing open if they continued their way of playing. That did not happen. I also wrote that any lead in this league is unsafe. This proved true. North Texas could not shoot at all through most of the… Read more »

North Texas Falls to 16-2, Loses to UTSA in SA

Josh White had 32 points including a clutch basket down the stretch. NT went 20-11 that season, averaged 4006… Read more »

New Basketball Facilities Require Renovation While Being Built

From the DRC: UNT’s new basketball offices, as they were originally constructed, pale in comparison to the area the programs vacated inside the Coliseum. Those offices more closely mirror the standard in college basketball. That is … not good. Chalk this up to the previous regime, which apparently did not consult at least one end… Read more »

Basketball Recruiting Update -4/13

In the past couple of days North Texas Mens Basketball program has gone from 1 open scholarship to 4! Shane Temara graduated. A.J. Lawson, Allante Holston, and Khalil Fuller all decided to transfer out. So that leaves the question who is coming in? Well North Texas has yet to receive a commitment for their 2018… Read more »
