Kelvin Gaines leaving UNT for pro career

Recommended Posts

Can't say we will miss him. Could never stay on the floor. Was normally out of position when he did play. Best of luck to him though

But will we be able to replace him with someone who's better.

Most likely yes. It wouldn't be a hard task. Although finding big guys has not been a strength of Benford.

Could probably throw Antonio Johnson out there and see improvement

Yeah. I just don't see us getting someone over 6'7" who is actually good as long as Benford is here. Take a look at Gaines' production, and the 6'9" JUCO post who we're looking at.

Either go with small lineups all the time or put space eaters with little skill in.

Is this a joke? Kelvin Gaines couldn't put up anything close to decent stats in college ball regardless of the reason. No professional team is going to sign this guy. This has to be a joke.

Professional team doesn't necessarily mean NBA. There are plenty of spots in Japan, Israel, France, etc. professional leagues that would take a flier on a 6'9" US college player.

I'm sure the deal is already done or he wouldn't be leaving.

And if presented with the choice of making a few bucks and experiencing a different part of the world and it's culture or getting 5, 1 min 30 sec sub-runs a night under Bedford I whole-heartedly support the man's decision.

So he'd rather leave the country than be associated with Tony Benford?

Sounds about right.

Remember that 6 point, 4 rebound domination against FAU? Remember the 44 personal fouls against 41 combined points + rebounds in 2013-14?

His time with North Texas was brief, but he'll always have the memories. And a suitcase full of t-shirts that Scott Monarch gave him.

The real question here is, how are we going to replace the production? He had that one assist in the La Tech game... Who is going to distribute for Jordan now?

More importantly, how in the heck is he gonna feed his babies?

      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 Draper period. He is so damn deserving...
      So assuming if through attrition or whatever, we have 1 or 2 (not likely) spots left to give, at what position would you think we need to land to best set ourselves up for the 2019 season?  Should it be high school or juco or best available?  Put yourself in Mac's shoes and let's try to predict what (if anything) he will do.
      PS - I am sure I am missing some details on the scholarship numbers etc here so feel free to correct as needed!  GMG

      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 night, as a 14-2 run early on was capped by back-to-back 3-pointers from Jorden Duffy and Michael Miller. Toward the end of the first half, UNT went on a 14-0 run over four-and-a-half minutes to build 42-20 lead. UNT opened game on 13-2 run, Jacksonville State didn't have first field goal until nearly six minutes into the game. At one point in the first half, UNT made 14 of 15 field goal attempts to help spur a 57-point first half in which UNT shot 70 percent from the field and made 10 of 14 shots from beyond the arc. The last time UNT scored 90 or more points against Division I opponents in three straight games was 1997-98. It marks first time since the 1990-91 season that UNT has beaten three straight Division I opponents by scoring 90 points or more. The win marks the Mean Green's third three-game (or more) winning streak of the season, which is the most since 2010-11, when there were also three such streaks. UNT had five players score in double figures - Roosevelt Smart, Jorden Duffy, DJ Draper, Zachary Simmons and Ryan Woolridge - marking the first time since an overtime loss to Western Kentucky on Feb. 15 that the Mean Green have had five or more players reach double figures. The Mean Green shot 71 percent from the charity stripe and are now 11-0 this season when shooting better than 70 percent from the foul line.
