UNT Basketball: Mean Green to Play In 2023 NABC Brooklyn Showcase

DENTON, Texas – The North Texas men’s basketball team will face Fordham at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Dec. 10 as part of the 2023 NABC Brooklyn Showcase quadruple header, the event announced on Monday.

The Mean Green and Rams’ tip-off time from the Brooklyn Nets’ home arena is scheduled for 10:30 am CT. The broadcast designation will be announced at a later date. 

This will be North Texas and Fordham’s first-ever meeting. 

UNT won the 2023 NIT championship last season and won a program-record 31 games.

The Mean Green on April 2 elevated long-time associate head coach Ross Hodge to lead the program, which has won either a postseason league or national championship in each of its last four seasons. Since Hodge arrived to Denton in 2017, North Texas has won a combined 135 games, including upsetting Purdue in the 2021 NCAA Tournament for the program’s first ever NCAA Tournament victory. 

The Rams are led by second-year head coach Keith Urgo who in his first season turned the Fordham program around with its most single-season wins since 1971 (25). The Rams finished in a tie for second-place in the Atlantic 10 Conference standings. Urgo was named the 2023 A-10 Coach of the Year.

should be a good match up, does it count as an away game or neutral site game?

I'd imagine Neutral.

The quadruple header starts with North Texas vs Fordham followed by Miami (FL) vs Colorado, then St John's vs Boston College and finally Temple vs U Albany.

The OOC schedule this year truly is impressive and being part of several showcases and tournaments with high-major programs means eyeballs will also be on the Mean Green. Absolutely critical to capitalize on the OOC schedule this year. Could be a program defining few months.
