  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. What do we need to do to make this first season a success under Grant McCasland? Especially on basically a home court?
  4. 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. UNT alums @Evan, @Harry and @BeyondTheGreen give their hot sports thoughts on the Homecoming return of Coach Darrell Dickey and the Mean Green's goal of capturing the Western Division Crown. Recruiting expert @TheReal_jayD joins us for his latest recruiting analysis and we dive into what could be a pretty exciting basketball season with fan favorite @BillySee58.

  5. It starts later in the show as we discuss football in the first segment and recruiting after that but @BillySee58 gives a nice preview on McCasland and the BBall team this year that is worth a listen if you are trying to get caught up: GOMEANGREEN BARBERSHOP PODCAST #189
  6. http://www.meangreensports.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/102917aaa.html Oct. 29, 2017 Box score HOUSTON – Freshman Zachary Simmons scored the game-winning basket with 18 seconds left to lift North Texas men’s basketball on the road at Houston Baptist, 84-81, in an exhibition Sunday at Sharp Gym. With the Mean Green trailing by one point 81-80, Simmons was able to muscle his way inside and score with 18 seconds left. Houston Baptist tried to answer but North Texas forced a turnover to seal the victory with three seconds left. Sophomore guard Roosevelt Smart made two fr
  7. @Cooley You have a well deserved reputation for your knowledge and understanding of basketball. I and others are interested in terms of your thoughts in regards to Tony Benford and this 2016 squad as well as future prospects?
  8. Jeff Luster has joined the UTSA staff as director of operations, effective immediately. Thompson’s staff consists of associate head coach Dan O’Dowd, assistants Robert Guster and Wai, plus Luster, who had been at North Texas the past five years as director of operations. read more: http://blog.mysanantonio.com/utsa/2015/08/wai-promoted-to-assistant-coach-in-utsa-mens-basketball/
  9. One who knows that all too well is former Arizona State basketball coach Evans, now the associate head coach at the University of North Texas. As the coach of the University of Mississippi Rebels from 1992-98, he found that other schools often used the flag as a recruiting tool to steer prospects away from his program. Evans was at a Mississippi football game when a fan dropped a confederate flag. It landed right in front of the African-American basketball recruit he was hosting. "He picked it up and handed it back to them," he said. That's an experience not written about in the how-to-recruit
  10. The question posed to Vic Trilli seven years ago struck him as odd. Interviewing for the athletic director job at Newman, Trilli, then the athletic director at Garden City Community College, answered in the best way he could. “They wanted to know, if I took the job, if I was even going to move to Wichita full-time,” Trilli said. “And I think that kind of was indicative of the state things were in at the time (at Newman). “I just said ‘Hey, if I’m here, I’m in. Like, I’m all in.’” Trilli has been that and more since he took the job at Newman in Sept. 2008, overseeing the school’s transition to
  11. North Texas will begin spring practice on Tuesday, when the Mean Green will look to replace several key players after a 4-8 season. The players UNT is depending on to help it improve come from a variety of sources, from incoming junior college players to high school signees who have arrived in the last few years. A few others will be veteran players looking to make an impact for the first time or move into a major role after arriving as a part of UNT’s 2012 class. A few players from that class have already become key players, including wide receiver Carlos Harris, a high school signee, and M
  12. BIRMINGHAM, Ala. --- When Tony Benford arrived at North Texas two seasons ago to coach the Mean Green's men's basketball team, he scanned the rosters of his soon-to-be Conference USA rivals. "I looked at my assistant coaches and said, 'Wow, there are lot of high-major guards in this league,' " said Benford, who had been an assistant at Marquette. "They can be playing in the Big East; that's how good they are." Conference USA has indeed become a guard-dominated league. Look no further than the preseason all-conference team, where seven guards were voted to the 10-player unit. "We've
  13. Former Texas A&M point guard J'Mychal Reese has decided to transfer to North Texas and will start school July 7. Reese made an official visit Tuesday and announced his decision the next morning via twitter. "Also wanna thank UNT for this opportunity. God is good!!" the former Bryan all-state point guard tweeted at @j_mych. North Texas was the only school visited by the 6-foot-1 Reese, who was dismissed 10 games into his sophomore season on Dec. 22 before A&M's game against Oklahoma. Reese missed the first four games of the season for violating team rules, then averaged seve
  14. Holy Cross Hosts Signing Ceremony for Class 5A Player of the Year, Greg White-Pittman, Nephew of NBA Coach Robert Pack WHO: Greg White-Pittman, Holy Cross Guard, Class 5A Player of the Year and Nephew of Former 13-year NBA Veteran/Assistant NBA Coach Robert Pack WHAT: Holy Cross to Host Official Signing Ceremony WHEN: Thursday, May 15, 2014 12:00 Noon WHERE: Holy Cross School, Gymnasium, 5500 Paris Ave. WHY: White-Pittman Commits and Signs with University of North Texas NBA Coach and 13-year NBA Veteran, Robert Pack said, “I’ve watched Greg mature and develop through har
  15. I got this info from someone who knows him extremely well: - A steal for North Texas this late - A bit of a tweener in that he is right about 6-2 - being committed to Tulane for so long (a year?) hurt Greg in terms of the higher level schools that were interested in him early expected him to go to Tulane. By the time he and Tulane parted ways many of the bigger schools had moved on. - parting with Tulane was mutual - definitely a 2 that can play point if needed to. - goes to the basket like a madman. Will likely lead the team in FT attempts as he is tenacious in drivi
  16. UNT post player Kelvin Gaines is leaving UNT to pursue a professional career. read more: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2014/04/kelvin-gaines-leaving-unt-for-pro-career.html/
  17. Chris Jones can remember the popping sound that came from his right foot as he dove after a loose ball on the floor at E.A. Diddle Arena more than a year ago. At the time, Jones thought he needed a new tape job. North Texas’ starting point guard found out later he needed a lot more than some tape. He needed time — nearly half a season’s worth — to recover after breaking a bone in his foot. And that was just for starters. Jones also needed time to overcome the depression he sunk into and rediscover the form he showed early in his career, when he emerged as one of UNT’s most valuabl
  18. Looks like the schedule downgrade may hit us as well. Brett has a story that he is updating linked here: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2014/01/unt-c-usa-officials-examining-unt-scheduling-issue.html/
  19. DENTON — The University of North Texas basketball team will open conference play on Thursday with a four-game winning streak. On their team are two college graduates with playing eligibility left. “I got my Bachelor of Science in criminal justice,” said UNT center Kelvin Gaines. “It’s kind of a long name: it's Interactive virtual Digital Communications,” North Texas guard Vertrail Vaughns said of his degree. Gaines is from Florida and played at Cincinnati before transferring to Denton. Vaughns went to Mesquite High School and played at George Mason. Because Gaines and Vaughn a
  20. Brooks "Bubba" Jennings, who has served in various capacities under Bob Knight, Pat Knight and Billy Gillispie, will begin his 12th year as a part of Texas Tech basketball staff under head coach Chris Walker. Jennings was one of the most decorated players in Texas Tech history, winning the coveted Francis Pomeroy Naismith Award as the nation's most outstanding collegiate basketball player under six-feet tall following his senior season. He started every game he ever played in at Texas Tech (117). An honorable mention All-America and Academic All-America selection in 1985, Jennings led
  21. Sources indicate that Bubba is working at a bank in Lubbock and is enjoying it. He likes living in Lubbock. That said, the right coaching opportunity would get his attention. He maintains very close contact with Tony Benford.
  22. Bart Lundy’s tenure at North Texas was a short one. He stayed just a year before accepting the head coaching job at Queens in Charlotte. We talked about Lundy’s decision to head back to the school where he started his career as a head coach last night. The interesting aspect of how it all played out is that one of the big selling points for Benford when he took his first job as a head coach is that he could bring a pair of veteran head coaches with him to UNT in Lundy and Rob Evans, who is still on staff. So the question now becomes: Where does UNT go from here? It’s getting a
