RE: North Texas
We could and should've won against MTSU and UTEP as well. This game is a must win, otherwise this season may start going down the tank quickly. We have to go at least 1-1 on this road trip.

RE: North Texas
North Texas is the anti-UTEP as far as size. Their top eight in minutes played are 6-7 or shorter. Their ninth, tenth and eleventh guys are taller, but only combine for ~34 minutes per game. CJ should have some good matchups again, and this is probably a good game for Foz to test out his mask.

Despite the lack of size, they are a good rebounding team. 28th in the nation. They have a couple of wings leading the team with ~6 rpg each. They shoot a similar FG% as us, but are very bad in assists per game. Bottom 20 bad.

They are led by their backcourt, reminds me of UTSA. Probably a similar talent level too.

The North Texas fans on the main board seem to hate their coach Benford. I think they don't mind losing if it leads to him getting fired.

I hope you're right. We need this win in a bad way.

RE: North Texas
This UAB team does not blow anyone out. I would expect most home games and every road game to be decided by single digits. Even a should-win like North Texas will probably go down to the wire.

RE: North Texas
I agree. We've either been blown out or won/lost close games. I don't count 20 point wins against a d2 team or 300+ in the RPI as a true blow out.

RE: North Texas
Here's a fun fact that didn't make the TIBH cut.

North Texas's head coach Tony Benford played high school basketball for the legendary New Mexico high school coach Ralph Tasker. Tasker has been credited by Nolan Richardson for inspiring his "40 minutes of hell" brand of basketball, a version of which was brought to UAB by Mike Anderson.

Another fun fact:
One of North Texas's assistant coaches is Rob Evans, former head coach at Ole Miss.

The arena looks pretty nice based on the photo tweeted out. I wonder how much student/fan support they get.

According to KevMo, they only get 2,035 a game to fill up a 10,500 seat stadium.

That's what I get for not reading all the information posted.

RE: North Texas
Speaking of students (UAB),

Their turnout seems pathetic so far as a whole. IMO
