I know especially because I don't at my job, but some do and that should lessen traffic to a degree.

I hope so. 
Denton ISD is out tomorrow.  It was a snow make-up day, but we did not have a bad weather day.  So parents of younger elementary-aged kids may have taken off.

Given the early start and that some folks might have family things going on, I think slightly more than Wednesday is about all we could hope for.  Originally I was thinking maybe even 5.5K or 6K, but I'll be happy with the 4100 we had last night.

President just announced the University will close at Noon this Friday.  

Wish he would have also announced that student had to attend the game in order to skip classes Friday afternoon/night.   Not like it would be enforceable, but might as well throw it out there.

Time for Dentonites to support their D-1 Basketball team.

Let's try our best not to turn this into a bash Denton, Alumni, Students thread until AFTER we see the attendance.  We're all bit concerned about it, but none of us know how it'll be.

I've read on Don's Central as well as their subreddit that Matt McCarthy will be out for the game with a concussion.

I have tried to get my coworkers to come out but they are to busy trying to connect with the “bigger” and “better” schools. Roy Williams had dropped by and I guess North Carolina is more important than the home team... 😕

Hope McCarthy is ok.

Funny — your post got me to thinking.  At the game last night I commented how much more athletic we were and how they looked like an old school Naismith type of throwback squad.  They certainly have more height but we can out jump them.  It’s one of the more interesting matchups I’ve seen in awhile.  They sort of remind me of an ivy type team we played in the Pit under Benford, can’t recall their name... they had brown jerseys.

I rewatched the game on ESPN3 and he looked bad on TV.  He was just sitting on the end of the bench and you could tell he was not all there.  Not surprising to hear.  Arikawe knocked the holy hell out him with an elbow.

I work in Frisco and both 121 and 380 are huge pains at 5:00 p.m. Fingers crossed!

Nothing wrong with 121-35 Texpress lanes at that time of day shouldn’t take more than 25 minutes

I'm pretty sure that Brown University is the only Ivy League school that wears brown jerseys.

When we played Lehigh (1st year of BennyBalltm, they did have brown jerseys as I recall.  We certainly had more raw athleticism on the floor, but with Benford at the helm we were clearly outmatched and what was supposed to be a big matchup sadly ended with a thorough thrashing of the Mean Green on our own home court.

I was thinking about 5000+ too initially but with a 6pm start and Easter weekend, I'd be happy with 4000. The fact that we even expect 4000 is an amazing development in this early phase of our turnaround by GM.

I remember seeing him on the end of the bench holding the bandage on his forehead and telling my daughter that he looked concussed. I wish the very best for this young man. I'm always complaining about ticky tack calls in bball, but I feel like the refs have let too many obvious calls go in this series. I like letting them play but you also have to protect the players.

it almost seems to me that the CBI home games has had more fans at the games then we had in the previous five years.  Actual bodies in the seats and not counting season ticket holders.  This what the pit should feel like full of energy.  Last game even the lady in front of me put her cell phone down for two minutes during the game.  Now that is energy!   Maybe this game she will actually stand up.
