    Congrats Mean Green. I wish we could have joined you still playing. I enjoyed our run. I’ve enjoyed your run as well. Great job forcing game 3. Unbelievable what your coach has done after a tough end to the season.

    We have yet to put together a great game. We lost Game 1 by 10 and had a shot until late all in a game that we fell way behind in early but didn't panic and chipped away at the lead all game. Game 2 our defense, rebounding, FT shooting and lack of turnovers carried us in a game where we were out shot on FG's and 3 pointers. If we put together a full game like we did against South Dakota, Mercer or Jacksonville St., we have the ability to run USF out of the gym. This really excites me for next year and the future should Coach GMc continue to recruit well considering USF beat Nevada by 2 and St. Mary's by 7 this year and lost to Gonzaga by 10 and 9 during the regular season before getting blown out in the WCC tournament. USF is a good program and we have the talent and ability to make them look pretty pedestrian at times.

    How about the biggest single season turn-around in UNT basketball history? regardless of what tournament this is, how many other college basketball teams are STILL PLAYING???

    The fact that he does not shoot from the outside makes him an outside shot liability.

    Best UNT years were absolutely the Bill Blakely ones about 1976-77 or so .. Won 22+ games those years (3 straight I think) but not in NCAA because it was only 24 or 32 teams then and we were independent with no conference championship to force us in.. The best NT game I saw was in 1965? when we defeated Cincinnati in the old Snake pit who had been national Champions a couple of years earlier (twice) before UCLA began its insane run of about 9 championships in 10-11 years. We were absolutely in the best Basketball conference in America... the Missouri Valley. UCLA was the best team but the MVC was the best conference.. in fact my senior year at Christmas 5 of the top 10 were MVC members. [ Louisville, Wichita, Cincinnati, and I think Bradley and Drake ] Texas Western aka UTEP won it all that year. .Why was the MVC so good ..??.. The ACC, SWC, SEC, and few others were all white and the MVC was integrated and pulling in a lot of talent and just outside of the South. . The best player I saw was Wes Unseld, later NBA Hall of Fame player and from Louisville. UTEP and UCLA were pulling in a lot of talent elsewhere then as well. .After I graduated Houston with Elvin Hayes was killing everyone except UCLA.. and the SWC was still not integrated or very little. Houston was then also an independent before joining SWC as team #9 ... We would like have been team #10 if SMU had not opposed us so strongly... Because of the gym size you had to go early if you wanted to see a game... all weekday games were full.. Weekends not so much. GO Mean Green...!!

    It’s the fishbowl phenomenon...they don’t know what they don’t know. I compare it to kids from tiny Texas towns who step foot on campus at NT and realize Dairy Queen isn’t 5* dining.

    As a proud alumnus of both MC and UNT it's pretty cool to know McCasland was so successful there first.

    I am with most of you... winning your conference is the goal. HOWEVER, winning this POSTSEASON tourney, will be a huge win for our program. One of the biggest wins. Lets not enjoy this and not poo poo on the fun. The rest of the conference is sitting at home... we are still dancing and it is so much fun! GMG!

    What makes Woolridge an outside shot liability? The fact he doesn't just jack up three point shots all the time? Coming in to tonight's game he is 50% from the floor. Not bad for the team's second leading scorer. The only liability Woolridge has is his free throw shooting.

    That’s why I said McCasland is running small ball and it’s working. It’s just interesting to think that Temara and Holston started so many games and now suddenly they have vanished, but Fuller is getting minutes.
  34. 3 points
    Holston is listed as a guard and he primarily plays the 4. He is a small ball player. Problem is, when you sacrifice size you are supposed to do so to get more skill on the court. Holston does not accomplish that. Miller gives you much more offensively, and has not been a drop off from Holston defensively.

    Nothing to see here. In no way does this indicate Littrell is unhappy in Denton. This is likely just his agent working as he should for his client. It would've been noteworthy if he had submitted a resume for a G5 program...an SEC program, not so much. The only issue I have is with the fact that this information is now public - forcing him to address it with the locker room and his staff to make sure no one feels a disloyalty on his part. I trust he's already done this by now.

    I have no doubt in my mind Littrell has UNT's best interest in mind right now. He's not kicking the can with the scholarship fiasco he inherited. He's slowly rectifying it. He could just keep Blueshirting the heck out of guys to get his roster up to size, give himself the best chance to win, then get out of town at the first opportunity. He's not doing that. I believe everything he says about "Mean Green Family" and whatnot. These are his guys. I also have no doubt in my mind he's looking to move up to a P5. His track record speaks for itself. He's only loyal to UNT until a P5 job opens up. I understand that. Guys like Bobby Bowden, Bill Snyder & Gary Patterson are not easy to find. Littrell is a competitor. He wants to be the best. The only way to be the best is to win a National Championship... and you can't do that unless you're at a P5 school with $$$$ to blow. UNT is nowhere near that kind of school. I'm sure Urban Meyer looks back fondly on his time at BGSU, and everything he said/did while there was genuine. But if he remained there, he wouldn't have multiple National Championships.

    I'll be curious how students react. I think the value of this extends way beyond the financial savings, but there's no way to be sure.

    Western Kentucky did well in NIT and was eliminated in the semi-finals on Tuesday by Utah ... 69-64 and had defeated and eliminated Oklahoma State which was a very good Big-12 team, also Boston College and Southern Cal earlier. Middle Tennessee won one game in the NIT then was eliminated by Louisville. ...... Marshall in the NCAA defeated Wichita State then lost to West Virginia of the Big-12. . CUSA has had a pretty good year in the post-season.. with none of the four teams losing in the first round and had success. Chicago Loyola won the CBI about 3 years ago and they are now in the NCAA final four.. Go Mean Green...!! .
