  1. Watching the Richmond/Toledo game tonight was real joy for me. Not that I cared who won, but because the North Texas court logos were clearly viewable in almost every shot. That equals two plus hours of free advertising on ESPN2. And, we still have 3 more opening round games left over the next few days. We are also enjoying our logo being displayed at the games in Frisco. I have no idea how Wren achieved this, or what he had to spend to have North Texas partner with the NIT, but it was a real stroke of genius. It is all the better because UNT is in the Madness this season, which creates a seco

  2. Congratulations on a great game. Your team had a good game plan and executed it to the “t”. You were definitely the best team on the floor tonight. Purdue’s youth really showed in this game but we’ll be back. Best of luck for rest of tourney...This Boilermaker will be cheering for you. Boiler Up!

  8. This Boiler fan will adopt UNT as long as you can keep dancing. I hope there is still room on the bandwagon. Your team is extremely well coached. I don't know how many times last night I thought Purdue was going to get a stop after playing solid defense for 20-25 seconds, only to find that the fourth ball screen got you the switch and the matchup you wanted, one cut, one reversal, and yet another open look. That's not something that can be taken for granted; many veteran teams don't have that kind of poise. I also thought that you guys rebounded extremely well for the first 35 m

  12. Thank you! You just made hundreds of thousands of UNT alums proud. This run meant so much for so many, not to mention Stephen F'ing King. It's something we've been starving for (for about a century or so) and will never forget.

  13. I feel like Simmons was the player of the game - even over Hamlet. Simmons played their NBA draft pick to a draw, and when we were about down for the count hit a big shot to start our comeback.

  15. I hope to never have a reason to visit again. Your senior laden team executed well and outplayed us. If we play again I truly want to be on the good side of a 10 point win. oh well for now it’s a dream. Great defense. Javion is truly a ball player. Good luck the rest of the way. this is why i don’t bet on sports... losing hurts. But it was a good game, can’t blame refs, UNT is good and on a hot streak.

  18. One minute, and 39 seconds. That’s how long Purdue led in our game against them. They scored the first points to go up by 3 at 3-0...and after that, never led. Years from now, when some sportscaster tries to talk about our Herculean effort to stay with mighty Purdue and prevail in the end, I hope our athletic department reminds them of this fact.

  19. @ADLER, that didn’t happen, the guy misheard something and corrected himself. There’s lots of speculation but who the hell knows. Everything from a ref who officiated our final Sunday who tested positive Monday(he’s in bad shape, hope he pulls out of this ok) to the hotel where both teams and officials stayed at. Why didn’t the other team test positive? Maybe because they paused earlier this season due to positives and didn’t get it now. or again who knows....I bet there are three more theories popped up as I type this! Just hoping it gets resolved not to point fingers but to know how to do be

  28. Stayed away from the board, too damn nervous to read. I admit, didn’t think we’d score enough to win. Having said that, I’ve been watching NT games for thirty years. Throw in the CUSA tournament (especially after we were down by seven to WKU) plus tonight and this is the gutsiest UNT team I’ve ever watched. I’m literally a giddy teenage girl right now.

  35. To piggyback off of what Plumm said, not only does the Mean Green Nation need to show up for the first home game, we need to the whole season. I understand it's easy for me to say this since I live out of state, but I don't care. After winning a game in the NCAA Tournament, unless we have a dramatic cratering next season, we need to AVERAGE 6K+ fans at the Super Pit for the season. I don't care if we're playing an NAIA, WKU, or Texas A&M. The squad finally gave us a win in the Big Dance, they deserve the support.

  37. FWIW “It’s funny, our guys want to celebrate, but they don’t really want to celebrate because they know we have more to play for. There’s a resolve to what we’re doing, so there’s no confusion. We didn’t come here to win one game, the belief in that locker room is that we’re here to play for it all."

  39. He didn’t just leave for a bigger position. He left for his alma mater. What we feel for North Texas, he feels for LSU. I will never fault him for that and wish him nothing but the best.

  40. - We beat WKU to win the title last year...but there was a bit of an asterisk in the minds of some people. They didn’t have Bassey. Well, this year they did and It didn’t matter. - We started out white hot, and if we didn’t get sloppy to end the first half and come out of the locker room we might have run away and hid. - Western has a ton of heart. They are obviously well coached and I believe deserve an NCAA bid because they are certainly one of the 64 best teams in the country. If they don’t get one I will be at the pit rooting for them if they’re in the NIT - North Texas

  42. I attended (partly.....my grandkids were getting bored and overheated ) and I didn't see any bad news....not really. This was the spring game for showing how much the defense had improved. Toward that end, it was "go after the QB as hard as you can.....which they did. The QB's 1 and 1a Aune/Martin. I was impressed with Martin's passing, Aune was good, but at this stage of his career, he shouldn't be overthrowing his receivers....as much. Both were pretty confident, but Aune didn't have to run for his life like Martin did.....or the rest of them for that matter. The rest. I wa

  43. I don't know if this has been discussed before, but Reese went to the line in OT this year with free throws to clinch the game and swished them. Similarly, he went to the line with NT up 74-72 last year against WKU and swished both free throws. From a stats standpoint, his % says he should have missed one of those, meanwhile, none of them even needed help from the rim to go through. This guy has ice water in his veins
