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

Sometime after the game the players leave their locker room and don athleisure wear and meander out of the locker room. The crowd of an announced 2600+ that was just loudly cheering for or against the comeback was now quiet, talking about free Whataburger. It was a bit of a strange scene. North Texas had…

Zachary Simmons Is Good

  Previously, I linked to some of the good stuff Zach did against Tech. I wanted to discuss something else he did against UTEP last night. This play is not particular special in that it does not have some outstanding display of other-worldly athleticism like any Zion Williamson highlight. This is instead just good post play.…

North Texas Basketball Is Back

The greatest North Texas basketball game I have been to was the win over Texas Tech in the Super Pit on Tuesday November 16th, 2011. The place was packed and North Texas won 92-83 in OT. Josh White had 32 points including a clutch basket down the stretch. NT went 20-11 that season, averaged 4006…

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…

2018 CBI Final Game 3: North Texas vs San Francisco

Sometime after the game wrapped on Wednesday night, Your Favorite Blogger (YFB) decided to put off a hastily written recap to enjoy time with his family. Work emergencies, snooze buttons, and the movement of the earth through time and space later, it is the day of game three and no recap is in draft form.…
