    DRC: JUCO wing high on UNT after visit to school

    The staff feels pretty good about their team heading into next year. They werent looking to add a whole bunch

    UNT is not actively recruiting him. He hasn't heard from them. Has some JUCO offers and is getting looks from a few other mid majors. I think UNT has moved on
  3. The focus seems to be on versatile wing players 6'5/6'6/6'7ish. Someone like Holston that is a threat to score. I believe that is the type of guy they want to add with this class. Draper is deserving, but if I only have one scholarship it cant be him. Mac has to let him know that his scholarship is coming if need be, but it might not be now. One thing they are missing is the shot blocker, that's what I would like to see them add, but that's going to be so hard to find. They will get enough low post scoring from Zach, Simmons, and Tope that they dont really need another guy. Sure it would be nice for depth like y'all have mentioned, but its not a priority. Ultimately I trust in the plan to add another scoring wing. Two guys clogging the paint up doesn't translate to wins. UNT needs to continue to focus on playing with pace and space. Give me the 6'6 Wing that can play 1-4. Guard bigger players in the paint or switch onto any guard. Can drive to the rim. Hit 3's. That is the guy that North Texas HAS to add. The coaching staff knows it. @BillySee58has mentioned it before. 3 Shooters should always be on the floor next year. Lawson and Woolridge should rarely be on the floor at the same time.

    For those wondering this game will be televised. South Dakota is working out the details.

    Point

    Do yourself a favor and look past the old numbering system of 1,2,3,4,5. Don't try to fit players into those traditional roles. Basketball is becoming positionless. It could be as simple as guard, wing, big. Or could go further into their playing style and define him - rim attacking ball handler, two way star, 3 point specialist, scoring rebounder, paint protector, shooting ball handler. Ryan is rim attacking ball handler.

    I've been critical of Draper a lot this season, but this is where your wrong. Go back and re-watch games. Draper was one of the better defenders. Smart was more of a defensive liability then Draper. Your correct about the rest.

    They lost by 40 to ODU and went to OT with Charlotte last week so UTSA has their own issues. I wouldn’t say they are playing really well.

    You’re right he did push off, but Lawson had already committed the foul. That’s why it’s was called. Lawson didn’t have the position. Tough call. Lawson’s been great at getting charges all year. It just wasn’t the right time or place to try. I just wish he would’ve fouled Beard

    Arikawe and Fuller were more matched up with Coleby not Johnson. Holston and Lawson guarded Johnson a lot. Both times Temara subbed in he came in for Holston or Lawson. Arikawe was on the floor the the first time with him, and Simmons was on the floor the second time. Temara came in at 17:03 in the second half. Johnson hit a 3 at 16:08 Temara came out at 15:13 Temara subbed back in at 13:13 Johnson hit a 3 at 12:00 Temara got taken out at 11:24 Did I say that everyone else played good defense? You asked why Temara wasn't play much. I gave you the reason. It's not that hard to see on the floor.
