Rout! UNT 74 – Ark St 50

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 »

WKU 2.7.13

Guys, there simply isn’t much to say about that.

NT 66 South Alabama 56 – 1.12.13

I’ll be honest. I didn’t watch the game live on account of the NFL playoffs and a little housewarming party we had. I did sneak peaks at the score on my phone and had the game on the iMac. South ‘Bama is a good squad by record, coming in with a 5-2 conference resume. Still,… Read more »

Last night the basketball team fell to 0-2 on the conference season and 5-8 overall. Coming off the game against Lehigh in which they couldn’t score or defend and going into a WKU-MTSU… Read more »

Lehigh Recap

CJ McCollum didn’t even play. Sixty or so NBA scouts attended tonight’s game to figure out where they were going to take CJ and our own Tony Mitchell in the upcoming draft. CJ is a senior while Tony is only a sophomore. He is widely expected to go pro after this year. Without a possible… Read more »

NIT Gut Punch

Raise your hand if you thought we had an outside chance at beating K-State. Raise your hands if you are reevaluating everything you thought about this team.
