The UTSA pep band helped North Texas win this game. Hear me out: To begin with, the band picked on Shane Temara in the first half, with their “Shane sucks” chant. It is an old college basketball fan game where the band/student section picks on a player all game for no particular reason. It was… Read more »

Winning is the thing. Given the nature of the thing — seemingly the product of fortune and chance — the search for controllable elements not solely controlled by the whims of fate goes on. This is why you hear coaches spout clichés on “controlling what we can control”. Like all clichés, there is truth in… Read more »
North Texas captured its second win 90-78 at home last night over Bethune Cookman. North Texas had a couple of runs that led to the difference in this game. The 19-3 run in the second half set the tone for the rest of the game. What led to those runs? Well it was good defense… Read more »

Unfortunately, it was not enough to overcome two runs by UT-Arlington in each half. For the game, North Texas shot only 31%. Arlington did not play particularly great defense, but North Texas… Read more »

North Texas beat Rice on a rainy Sunday in Houston.

The great thing about road trips is that they provide all the time… Read more »
Box Score: NT 71 Nicholls 57 Good – Rebounding. UNT defeated the Colonels on the board 56-34. That is exactly what I wanted to see. Also take note that it can be difficult to rebound out of the zone. I thought UNT did a fairly good job at going and getting the ball. Bad –… Read more »
Quick look at the basketball team.
This thread is probably the best summation of the game. Player coach!
This has been a nightmare. Injuries, underwhelming performances, questionable coaching, and bad luck have conspired to produce a terrible 7-14 season in the Sun Belt that UNT was tabbed to win outright. There were some rumblings about squeezing into a 10-seed if we we got lucky. Sometime early on SBNation wrote us off. There was… Read more »
