anyone else vomit a little bit when we mentioned SMU beating Memphis on our postgame show? As far as I’m concerned our radio should act like SMU doesn’t exist unless we are playing them or they’ve exp

"This is the worst damn place in the world to play basketball! This place is a snake pit!" – Drake coach Maury John, after a double-overtime loss to North Texas Photo 1969. The Snake Pit. Crowd 4

Fun fact, Souley Boum will be playing his first game in the Super Pit for UTEP but not his first game in the Super Pit altogether. He was San Francisco’s second leading scorer as a true freshman back

UTEP is 2 - 7 away from El Paso.  The hold a 6 - 2  advantage vs. NT, but our two wins came in EP.  They are led by their guards, Boum (12.2 pts/gm) and Edwards (10.4 pts/gm) and F Bryson Williams is their leading scorer at 18.6 per game.  All that being considered, I predict the following:

North Texas wins by at least 12 points, and we hold them to 60 or less.

UTEP has lost 8 games, 4 of them have been by one possession and two others were within 5 points.  This is a tougher team than their record indicates.  I'm glad it's at home.

This will be my first game of the year and my daughter's first UNT basketball game.  Hope we leave happy.

GMG!

So the streak will continue

Make that 6K!

 

Absolutely !   With UNT finally playing such great basketball again, leading the conference, 6 wins in a row,  the Pit should be packed EVERY HOME GAME with at least 6000.  THESE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS - ENJOY EM.  Reminiscent of some exciting days under Coach Bill Blakeley in 1976.  WHY NOT UNT? WHY NOT NOW?

I agree. I'll be the first to ban her from the super pit for life. 🙂 I'd blame this football season on her, but she's been going to those for years.  However, we haven't won a conference championship since she was born.....hmmmmm?

I was in that crowd.  As long as I live I will not forget the atmosphere generated at the old Pit. It was greatness and the noise level would get so high that the metal walls of that arena would actually vibrate.  Oh, to bring that atmosphere back.
