ULM 82 UNT 75 February 19, 2011



The Loss Proper

Oh hell. Oh hell. The shame of losing to the team with the worst record in the conference is nigh unbearable. North Texas was the second conference victim and the seventh overall on the year for the Warhawks of Louisiana-Monroe.

Disappointing as it was, it was not surprising in the least. I sort of called this. Sort of. I didn’t know what to expect after ULM was spanked at Denver. I figured they could start with a little more fire but if they were handled early then they’d fall into “Uh oh. Not again” mode.

Unfortunately we didn’t make that happen. We played a very typical UNT game, let them hang around (or did they let us hang around??) and tried to break free late. Instead, they took control down the stretch, made clutch defensive stops and executed.

Simple as that.

The solution is less simple. Of course, that assumes there is one.

So, I missed the mini-comeback that was the win vs USA. After typing that abbreviation I finally understand the Team USA inspired threads they were rocking out there.

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…
