  1. RUSTON – After finishing 2018 with seven straight wins, Louisiana Tech will carry that streak into the new calendar year of 2019 when they take on North Texas on Thursday night at 7 p.m. inside the Super Pit. The matchup will be streamed live on ESPN+ (subscription required) with Hank Dickenson and Paul Valamides calling the action. Fans can also listen to the Voice of the Bulldogs Dave Nitz and Jack Thigpen call the game through the LA Tech Sports Network on KXKZ 107.5 FM (Ruston), KJVC 92.7 FM (Mansfield) and KRMD 100.7 FM/1340 AM (Shreveport) as well as on the Louisiana Tech X mobile
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. Been trying to compile a list of NT players that play overseas- I know Odufawa plays (or played in) Ukraine and Franklin plays somewhere in Eastern Europe, but where do others play? Does Eric Tramiel still play in Israel?
  5. Saw that a Joel Wright from North Texas was picked in the third round of the NBADL draft this past weekend Joel Wright? I assume they meant TX State Wish some of our guys got drafted in the D-League- other than T-Mitch, think Tristan Thompson was the last one
  6. Janis Peterson has left the North Texas women’s basketball program after one season to return to California, head coach Mike Petersen confirmed Wednesday afternoon. Read more: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2014/09/janis-peterson-leads-unt-hoops-program.html/

  8. Other area athletes who will compete at the Division-I level include Brownwood place-kicker Matt McCrane (Kansas State), Comanche distance runner Maci Schulte (Texas Tech) and Albany softball player Kelli Schkade (Missouri). Early’s Aubrey Horton (girls basketball) was undecided at press time, but could eventually choose the University of North Texas.

  9. Of the other mid-majors in the field, it is unlikely that any will advance to MSG. Delaware should get by Penn, but taking down Virginia will be difficult. And Cleveland State will likely run into Michigan in the second round. One other thing to watch in the field: North Texas has Alabama-Huntsville and then a likely date with Kansas State. It will be a nice two game showcase for sophomore Tony Mitchell, who scored an eye-opening 9.45 HW30 as a freshman. The Mean Green could definitely put on a show without a lot of preseason hype.

  10. The last piece of Creighton's scheduling puzzle might not be the elite program some Bluejay fans long to see their team play. But getting North Texas to open the season in Omaha excites coach Greg McDermott. “I think North Texas as an opener will turn out in the end to be a great game for us,” McDermott said. “And it's not going to be an easy game. They're going to be very talented, and there's a reason they had a hard time filling their schedule, too.” Creighton announced its 2012-13 schedule Thursday. Most of the Bluejays' nonconference opponents were already known, but McDermott an
  11. North Texas added one final piece to what is expected to be among the best teams in school history Tuesday when T.J. Taylor made Denton the next stop in what has been his long and winding road in college basketball. The former Denison standout began his career at Oklahoma, played one season at Paris Junior College and spent a few weeks at Marquette this summer before returning home. New UNT head coach Tony Benford recruited Taylor at Marquette and convinced him to follow him to Denton. Taylor, a 6-foot-4 guard, announced his decision on his Twitter account Tuesday afternoon in a message
  12. T.J. Taylor, a former Denison standout who spent time at Oklahoma and Marquette, is on an official visit to UNT today. A UNT source confirmed that the 6-3 shooting guard is on a visit to the school Thursday afternoon. Taylor said earlier in the day via text message that, “nothing is set in stone” as far as where he will continue his college basketball career. New UNT head coach Tony Benford is a former Marquette assistant and recruited Taylor to the Big East Conference school. Taylor arrived at Marquette in early July and left the school in a matter of days to return to Denison.
  13. Taylor, 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, was entering his first season at Marquette and had three seasons of eligibility remaining. He averaged 14.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists last season to help Paris to a 23-7 record. He was a third-team All-American pick who signed with Marquette in November. Williams said at the time: "History has proven that the guys we have signed with three years of eligibility remaining have been really good for us, and I have great belief that T.J. will be next in that line. "Similar to the guys in the past we have signed with three years left, T.J. fits
