Conference Play! UNT v UALR 12/30/10

Can we have this gain?

If you don’t remember how North Texas road to the NCAA Tourney twists and turns I have come to your rescue. No worries, bro.

Winning the conference regular season doesn’t do a whole lot of good outside of securing a nice little spot in the second round of the conference tournament. You may remember that we had such a bye last year. Worked out pretty well, though it carries with it no guarantees.

So here we be. Sitting at a nice pretty 11-2 with one understandable loss, and one bizarre one. I’m trying not to get too ahead of myself and wonder aloud about our chances of securing a bid nationally if we run through the ‘Belt in the regular season.


Still, UALR is sitting tied for second-best record in the conference with FAU (who has two conference wins already — over ULM and Troy). Vito says they are the clear challengers in the SB-West. I’ll go ahead and believe the guy.

It is a good time to face these guys, if they truly are our contenders in this division we will see what they have right off the bat.

Game is at 7pm at the Pit.
