  1. 12. North Texas Mean Green 2019-20: 20-11 (14-4), Conference USA regular season champion Grant McCasland hasn’t wasted any time getting things up and running in Denton. The Mean Green won 20 games for the third straight year, and the 34th-most efficient offense, per KenPom, propelled them to a C-USA title. The biggest revelation was the emergence of Javion Hamlet, who turned out to be one of the best JuCo transfers in the country last season. The guard led the Mean Green in scoring at 14.6 points per game and assists at 4.7. His play earned him C-USA Player of the Year honors, an
  2. "You find a love for the game and your team that you didn't know you had in high school," said junior Javion Hamlet who went to two different junior colleges before landing in Denton. "Try telling me I don't love the game when I had to live in a house with 16 other teammates in a city I didn't know and eat grimy food every day." McCasland's love for the game and the experiences that life haa brought him and his family doesn't just extend to him driving a team bus. Before becoming the head coach at Midland, McCasland was an assistant at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colorado.
  3. As North Texas prepared for its CBI opener at South Dakota, Grant McCasland had a problem. The Mean Green were limping when they accepted the tournament invite, having lost seven of their last eight games. McCasland had a dynamic, slashing playmaker in sophomore point guard Ryan Woolridge but the court had shrunk around him. UNT had shot just 28.3 percent from three in the previous four games, and McCasland needed to create space for his lead guard. As the morning shoot around unfolded, junior guard Michael Miller missed shot after shot. McCasland couldn’t take his eyes off of him.
  4. I like everyone am so thrilled about this major turnaround in men's basketball. The CBI has given us a glimpse of what could be an AMAZING future for the program. Here's my question, we know that we basically only lose Temara (who is not playing in the tourney) and we add the Russian (6-10) and Jahmiah Simmons (6-4) both listed as forwards. We know Umoja Gibson (shooting guard) will be back after his injury. We know Jalen Jackson the point guard out of SA is committed to the 2019 class. He is evidently the heir apparent to Woolridge. We also know that we OWE a ship to Dra
  5. QUICK HITTERS Ryan Woolridge's nine assists gives him 205 dimes on the season. He is now just three assists shy of the tying Walter Johnson's single-season record of 208 in the 1976-77 season. UNT hit 14 3-pointers on the night to extend its single-season program record to 290 made 3-pointers on the season. The 14-for-20 performance marks the fourth-best three-point percentage in a game (73 percent) in program history. The 14 makes ties for the fifth-most in program history and is the most since December 2007. North Texas used some big runs to control the
  6. What do we need to do to make this first season a success under Grant McCasland? Especially on basically a home court?
  7. The boys are back in the saddle again! This show we talk about a bowl eligibility clenching win on the road against La. Tech in Ruston by a score of 24-23.

  8. Matt Brune | Staff Writer Winners. That’s what newly appointed head basketball coach Grant McCasland wants in the North Texas basketball program. It’s something McCasland did plenty of in his lone season at Arkansas State University last season, when he doubled the Red Wolves’ win total from 10 to 20 in just one year. He remains adamant that having players with experience winning is crucial to building a successful program. This has always been McCasland’s approach to recruiting. With a Division II national title under his belt and several trips to the Elite Eight, McCasland has
  9. Just a few hours after being introduced as North Texas’ new men’s basketball head coach, Grant McCasland sat down with members of the media one-on-one. Sporting his new Mean Green colors and a smile on his face, he discussed the future of the program he is inheriting. On interest in the North Texas job. “Growing up in this area and in this state, North Texas was one university that had basketball success,” McCasland said. “I played tournaments at the Super Pit and watched several recruiting events at the Super Pit. I watched college games there. My knowledge was more of a fan. B
  10. A-State had a 400K 5-year guaranteed deal on his desk. UNT landed him with a 5-year $600K guaranteed deal if you include the $500K buy-out. In total a $3.5 million dollar contract. This deal placed UNT at the #2 spot in all of C-USA in head coach basketball salaries. So, without a doubt, if you look at where our compensation is now, in the three main sports, there is no question that we are at the top of C-USA. What I am interested to learn is what the buy-out is on the new UNT contract.
