  1. • The proposal may slow but will not completely end booster-led NIL collectives, which MAC commissioner Jon Steinbrecher says is the wish of “most” athletic directors. “They’d like to see collectives go away,” he said from Phoenix. But at many schools, collectives will remain as a third-party entity that (1) does not have to abide by Title IX and (2) can offer athletes extra compensation onto their school pay, most believe. “In my view, (collectives) will likely still exist regardless of how institutions are compensating student-athletes or not,” said Florida deputy AD Lynda Tealer, an expert on NIL matters who’s helped lead the NCAA NIL working group now for years.

  2. At its heart, Project DI is about deregulation. It cedes control of impactful decisions, such as athlete compensation, scholarship limits and roster spots, to the high-revenue producing schools.

    The proposal comes in two parts.

    (1) It permits DI schools to strike NIL deals directly with their athletes and offers athletes uncapped “educationally related enhancements.” That part of the proposal is on a sort-of fast track. The DI Council is expected to build a framework around the concept with recommendations due to the Board of Directors in April with potential adoption in August.

    (2) It creates a new subdivision of FBS, meant for the highest revenue-producing athletic departments, where these schools control rule and policy-making. There is an entry fee: Schools in the new subdivision would be required to distribute at least $30,000 per athlete for half of a school’s athletes while abiding by Title IX. Depending on the size of a school’s athletic department, that figure ranges from $5 million to $15 million annually.

    Gripes over the proposal range widely, according to conversations that several administrators held with Yahoo Sports over the last month, at the national championship site in Houston and NCAA convention in Phoenix.

    In a way, the NCAA’s own proposal strips away more of its own authority, which, ironically, opens up the organization to questions of its own existence from those in the major conferences: Can’t we enforce our own rules and operate our own championships?

  3. CHARLOTTE – The UNT men’s basketball team heads into Charlotte Saturday riding a league-leading six-game winning streak and aiming for its first 5-0 start to conference in 35 years.

     

    The Mean Green (11-5, 4-0) and 49ers (10-7, 4-1) are scheduled to tip-off Saturday at 3 p.m. CT from Halton Arena in Charlotte. The game will be broadcast on ESPN+ and the Mean Green Sports Network, presented by Learfield.

     

    On Wednesday North Texas defeated East Carolina on the road, 60-59, in one of the most dramatic victories in program history. With 3.1 seconds remaining trailing by one, Aaron Scott chucked a full-court inbound pass nearly 90 feet to Robert Allen who caught it and laid in the game-winning basket.

     

    The victory increased UNT’s winning streak to six in a row and kept them undefeated in the American Athletic Conference standings at 4-0. It is the first time UNT has started conference 4-0 since the 2018-19 season.

     

    A win Saturday at Charlotte would mark the program’s first 5-0 start to a conference slate since 1989 when the Mean Green opened the Southland Conference 5-0. That year, UNT won the Southland Conference regular season title with 10-4 league record. North Texas has never started a conference 6-0.

     

    Charlotte, though, has been a tough road game for North Texas. The Mean Green have lost their last two trips to Halton Arena. Last year, UNT fell 55-49 to the 49ers on the road. The loss snapped a then eight-game winning streak for the Mean Green.

     

    There were nine ties and six lead changes in the game last year, but Charlotte ended the contest making five of their final seven shots to capture the victory. The 49ers held UNT’s leading scorer Tylor Perry to a season-low eight points as he was 3-of-11 from the floor.

     

    Road games at Charlotte haven’t only been difficult for North Texas. The 49ers are 7-1 this year at home and defeated then No. 17 ranked Florida Atlantic at home 70-68 on Jan. 6. Charlotte is 29-9 (.763) at Halton Arena over the last three years.

  4. GREENVILLE, North Carolina – Robert Allen made a game-winning layup with 1.4 seconds remaining off a 80+ foot full-court inbound pass from Aaron Scott to seal the 60-59 victory over the East Carolina Pirates Wednesday night at the Williams Arena at Minges Coliseum.

     

    The win is North Texas’ sixth straight and improves them to 4-0 in conference. The Mean Green are now 21-5 in road games since 2021.

     

    “A perfect pass from Aaron (Scott) and a veteran composure catch and basket by Robert (Allen),” said head coach Ross Hodge. “Give coach (Michael) Schwartz and ECU a ton of credit. They did a great job at making things difficult for us today. But super proud of this group sticking together.”

     

    With 5:11 left in the game, ECU’s RJ Felton sank a deep second-chance 3-pointer at the end of the shot clock to give his Pirates the lead. ECU (9-9, 2-3) increased the lead to four with two minutes remaining.

     

    Scott gave his Mean Green (11-5, 4-0) a shot of life with 1:48 remaining as he hit a corner 3-pointer to bring his team within one.

     

    With 17 seconds left junior Rondel Walker came up clutch for UNT as he put in a third-chance layup in to give the Mean Green a one-point lead.

     

    Felton gave the Pirates a one-point lead with 3.1 seconds after he drove right and pulled up with a desperation midrange shot towards the end of the shot clock.

     

    With the East Carolina crowd ready to erupt in victorious pandemonium and UNT with no timeouts, Scott stepped behind the baseline and delivered a perfect pass to Allen in the opposite paint 80+ feet away for the win.

     

    “It’s a play we work on a lot,” Scott said postgame. “We knew exactly what to do.”

     

    The game-winning basket was just Allen’s second made field goal of the game as he finished with four points and 11 rebounds. Scott had 12 points, 5 rebounds and two assists. Jason Edwards led all scorers with 20 points. CJ Noland was also in double figures as he finished with 11 points and five rebounds.

     

    UNT stays on the road as they travel to Charlotte to face the 49ers on Saturday at 3 p.m. CT. The game will be broadcast on ESPN+ and Mean Green Sports Network.

  5. Who's Playing

    North Texas Mean Green @ East Carolina Pirates

    Current Records: North Texas 10-5, East Carolina 9-8

    How To Watch

    What to Know

    North Texas has enjoyed a two-game homestand but will soon have to dust off their road jerseys. The North Texas Mean Green and the East Carolina Pirates will face off in an American Athletic battle at 7:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Williams Arena at Minges Coliseum. North Texas' defense has only allowed 58.4 points per game this season, so East Carolina's offense will have their work cut out for them.

    Winning is just a little bit easier when your shooting is a whole 16.4% better than the opposition, a fact North Texas proved on Saturday. They enjoyed a cozy 69-51 victory over the Owls.

  6. GREENVILLE, North Carolina – The UNT men’s basketball team riding a five-game winning streak begins a two-game road trip on Wednesday as they first face East Carolina in Greenville, North Carolina.

     

    The Mean Green (10-5, 3-0) and Pirates (9-8, 2-2) are scheduled to tip off from Williams Arena at Minges Coliseum at 6 p.m. CT. The game will be broadcast on ESPN+ and the Mean Green Sports Network, presented by Learfield.

     

    It’ll be the fourth all-time meeting between North Texas and ECU but the first played at the Pirates’ home arena.

     

    UNT heads into the road conference game playing its best basketball so far as the Mean Green have held its previous two opponents, Tulane and Temple, to season low scoring outputs in route to two double-digit victories. The Mean Green own the nation’s third-best scoring defense as they’ve held their 15 opponents to an average of 58.4 points per game. Both Tulane and Temple were held to fewer.

     

    North Texas’ defense has led the nation in allowing fewest points per game in each of the last two seasons. Over the years it has been just as stout on the road. Since 2021, UNT is giving up just 58.8 points per game on the road (25 games). No other team in the country is giving up less than 62 points per road game over the same time span.

     

    Defense has been key to North Texas’ road success over the years as they enter Wednesday’s game owning the nation’s best road winning percentage over the last two-plus seasons at .800.

     

    Scoring points will be at a premium on Wednesday as the Pirates are also a strong defensive unit. Their coaching bench features former Texas Tech head coach Mark Adams whose Red Raiders defense became nationally known as the most efficient in the nation. Multiple years Texas Tech allowed less than 85 points per 100 possessions.

     

    ECU can also put the ball in the hoop well as they are led by its sophomore Ezra Ausar who also is a childhood friend of Mean Green guard Jason Edwards. Ausar, a forward, is one of the best in the American at scoring around the rim and gets to the foul line a lot as he draws over seven fouls per game.

     

    Following Wednesday’s game at East Carolina, the Mean Green travel to Charlotte to face the 49ers (9-7, 3-1) on Saturday at 3 p.m. CT to conclude the two-game road trip.

  8. Behind career highs from CJ Noland and Rubin Jones, the UNT men’s basketball team improved to 2-0 on the year with a 75-64 win over Omaha on Saturday at the Super Pit.

     

    Noland scored a career-high 18 points and Rubin Jones dished out a career-high eight assists in the 11-point win. Coming off his 26-point performance in the season opener on Tuesday, Aaron Scott also scored 18 points versus the Mavericks (1-2) as he and Noland led all scorers.

     

    “Omaha is a solid team,” Jones said. “They really challenged us and hit shots but guys like CJ (Noland) stepped up big and led us tonight.”

     

    Twenty of UNO’s 64 points on Saturday came at the free throw line as they finished 20-of-25 from the charity stripe. The Mean Green led the entire game for a one minute and 12-second stretch during the first half and seemed to start to pull away from Omaha when their lead grew to 18 right before halftime.

     

    However, the Mavericks crept back into the game as a 7-0 run early in the second half got the deficit back to within single digits.

     

    “We gave up way too many points in the second half,” Jones said. “We’ve got to be better defensively. Winning is never easy so we’re happy but we got to be better. And we will. We’re already way better than we were last game.”

     

    Down the stretch Noland put an end to any Maverick runs and hopes of a comeback as he drained step back 3-pointers and scored physical baskets around the rim. The Mean Green newcomer scored 11 points in the season opening win on Tuesday, which tied his career previously set at his former school Oklahoma. On Saturday Noland scored 13 points in the final 11 minutes of the game to seal the win.

     

    “Each day I’m getting more and more comfortable.” Noland said. “Rubin (Jones) has been a big part of that.”

     

    In addition to Noland’s second half, the Mean Green were once again clutch at the free throw line. On Tuesday they made 13 of their final14 free throws. On Saturday they ended the game making seven of their final eight attempts at the line.

     

    Saturday’s win is also the Mean Green’s seventh straight victory overall. It’s the nation’s second longest active winning streak behind reigning national champion UConn’s eight-game winning streak. Saturday was also North Texas’ 10th straight home win.

     

    UNT hits the road next as they travel to Charleston, South Carolina for a Thursday showdown versus St. John’s in the first game of the Shriner’s Hospital Charleston Classic. Thursday’s game will be broadcast on ESPNU and the Mean Green Sports Network, presented by Learfield. Tipoff is scheduled for 12:30 PM CT.

  10. DENTON – The UNT men’s basketball team defeated Northern Iowa 83-77 in overtime on Tuesday in one of the most thrilling Mean Green season openers in recent memory. The win was first-year head coach Ross Hodge’s first career victory.

    North Texas junior Aaron Scott scored a career-high 26 points in the home win and newcomer Jason Edwards added 19 to lead the Mean Green in scoring. Edwards made five free throws in the final 32 seconds of overtime to seal the victory. 

    Senior Rubin Jones scored 15 and tied his career high with five steals.

    “Incredibly thankful for the crowd tonight,” said Hodge of the 4,145 total fans and 1,602 students in attendance to see his first victory. “(UNI’s) toughness and experience showed tonight, especially in the first half. In the second half we were better in grabbing the 50-50 balls and kind of looked like the defense we’re used to playing. And I’m proud our team’s resolve. We’re going to have to figure out how to close out games, because again their experience showed late in the second half.”

    Thanks to a blistering 9-of-11 shooting from deep to start the game, North Texas (1-0) led 38-36 at the half, despite not quite looking as crisp on defense.

    In the second half the lead grew to as many as 11 points over the Panthers (0-1). But after Scott scored his then career-high 20th point on a 10-foot fadeaway with 7:04 left in regulation, UNT was held without a field goal for the remainder of regulation. Then with 1:42 remaining in regulation, UNI took a one-point lead. Its first lead of the second half. 

    Free throws kept the Mean Green in the game down the stretch and then in the final seconds of regulation with the game tied UNT stopped the Panthers on two final shots on one possession to send the game into overtime, tied 68-68.

     “When we come back and watch the film we have to watch it through the lens as if their last shot went in,” Hodge said. “I wouldn’t be here soaking wet (from celebrating). We would be sitting here talking about how we got beat on an offensive rebound. But I think that’s what great teams do. They process it and they continue to get better, because we can get so much better.

    “But of course, it’s great to learn and win and the same time.”

    In overtime, North Texas won the tip, scored on the first possession, and never looked back.

    UNT has now won four straight overtime games dating back to last season. They made 14 of its final 15 free throw attempts — 10 of 11 in overtime — to secure the first win of the season and of the Ross Hodge era.

    The Mean Green are back in action on Saturday at 7 p.m. CT as they host Omaha at the Super Pit.

    Whats the best way to get down there if we don't have Loge or Courtside Seats lanyards?  The arena attendants, especially if they're new, usually try hard at the begining of the season to keep people off the hardwood even if they're allowed to be there.

    PLEASE READ:  Upon conclusion of the Men's Basketball game vs. Sam Houston, the Mean Green Collective will be in the Mean Green Honor Club room on the lower level of the Super Pit.  Individuals planning to attend can make their way down the stairs near the end of the Mean Green home bench and up to north tunnel to the right.  The Mean Green Honor Club room is just around the corner from the north tunnel at the Super Pit.  There will be individuals present to help direct you once you get to the stairwell at the end of the Mean Green bench. Look forward to seeing many of you there!  Go Mean Green!
