Technically Murray State moved down from #1 to tied with us at #2, which I guess means we also tied for #1?🤔 Love his write up on us below!
T2. North Texas Mean Green (Conference USA)
Last week: 2
No group has enjoyed the dedicated VIP hosts and custom leopard print ottomans of Club KC quite like the Mean Green, who closed out the Super Pit portion of their schedule this week in style. On Thursday night, coach Grant McCasland's squad leveled Southern Miss 85-61 behind 21 points from Abou Ousmane. Then on Saturday, North Texas clinched the C-USA West Division in a smothering 56-49 victory over Louisiana Tech. Defensively, North Texas has set the standard this season, holding 12 opponents under 55 points while allowing a Division I low of 55.3 points per game. A 14-game win streak and 15-1 mark in conference play have the good folks in Denton poised for a legit run in the NCAA tournament. For now, they're enjoying the good life inside the velvet ropes of the most opulent joint in mid-major hoops.
