Drubbing at the Diddle. WKU in a blowout

Not much changed from the first half. That zone killed our offense enough for WKU to turn the lead into 20 points and keep it there for most of the balance of the game. The full-court press we put on served only to speed up the game. From there, the two teams were just trading… Read more »

WKU — Dribbles at the Diddle at the half

After fighting back to within five points the good guys scored only two more points for the last 3:51 and allowed 12 to WKU. What the hell happened?  Well, that zone they put on us was working. It wasn’t particularly stifling nor was it very aggressive. Perhaps it’s passiveness influenced our own passiveness? Save for one… Read more »

Defense?

On Vito’s blog, he talks a little about why we are sucking so much. So Johnny Jones wants defense and is benching Tristan for not being Bruce Bowen? UNT does need to play better defensively, but I wonder if benching the only pure scorer on the team is the answer. Someone has to handle the… Read more »

Take On Me and FAU Ends the 17 game Home Streak

As we left the Pit tonight some dude was humming along to the arena music. Then he started singing along with it, “Saaake on meee.” That pretty much summed up the night for me. That guy, like the team, was close but not quite close enough. I made the comment on the twitters that North… Read more »

The Snow Game

Tonight we will see who wins in the battle of Snow & Ice vs Cabin Fever. Denton, like fellow North Texan cities, has been jailed by the snowy, icy weather. My cousin-in-law has already succumbed to the cold and has canceled his scheduled trip to the Super Pit tonight. It will be a little easier for me…. Read more »

Road Woes

Here we sit with a sparkling 12-0 home record and a filthy 4-5 road mark. The most important of those five road losses are the three conference ones including a horrible one last night at ULL. All that good feeling about getting Tony Mitchell is gone after such a letdown. OH GOD WE ARE DEAD!!… Read more »

North Texas Puts A Beating On Arkansas State.

Arkansas State’s Martavius Adams came into this game averaging 12.6 points per game. He scored 4 tonight. I can’t say much for the other games he has played this year as I am not a Ark State fan. I can say that I watched him loaf around the Super Pit tonight and look all kinds… Read more »

Troy 89 North Texas 81: WTF?

It feels like we lost by more. With Troy carrying that sad little 3-13 record coming in and big bad North Texas with the 14-3 mark I was thinking that we should go and handle our business. Well, Troy did the business-handling.  For whatever reason NT couldn’t stop them in the second half, allowing them… Read more »
