Results to date: Eureka College (122-65); Nebraska (67-86); Bethune-Cookman (90-78); UT-Rio Grand Valley (63-75); Rogers St (86-74); Ga Tech (49-63); Grambling St (82-77); Oklahoma (72-82); Texas-Arlington (60-65); Indiana St (97-76 OT); McNeese St (85-47); San Diego (86-83 OT); Georgetown (63-75); UTEP (63-62); UTSA (72-71); Charlotte (68-70).

Last game: Charlotte opened the game 23-14 before the Mean Green awoke and closed the gap to 28-34 at HT. N Texas continued to rally at finally took the lead 54-53 and had a 4-pt lead with less than 2 mins, but again faltered losing on a Charlotte follow shot with .02 secs. Shane Tamara and Rooserveldt Smart led the Mean Green with 12 pts apiece.

Stats: 75.4 pts (71.8); .458 FG (.344 3s); .661 FT; +3.1 RB; A/TO= 0.90

Starters
F Shane Temara (6-9 225 Sr). 24.5 min.; .536 FG (22-54 3s); .550 FT; 6.6 RB; 11.1 pts
F Zachary Simmons (6-9 235 Fr). 18.2 min.; .702 FG; .400 FT; 3.5 RB; 4.9 pts
G AJ Lawson (6-5 195 So). 28.7 min.; .387 FG (8-37 3s); .593 FT; 5.8 RB; 2.6 assists; 10.4 pts
G Roosevelt Smart (6-3 185 So). 31.9 min.; .431 FG (48-120 3s); .901 FT; 3.8 RB; 18.7 pts
G Ryan Woolridge (6-3 175 So). 35.9 min.; .507 FG (10-28 3s); .614 FT; 5.4 RB; 4.7 assists; 13.4 pts

Bench
G Jorden Duffy (6-2 170 Jr). 19.3 min.; .347 FG (14-48 3s); .692 FT; 2.1 RB; 6.1 pts
G Allante Holston (6-7 190 Jr). 19.6 min.; .500 FG (5-10 3s); .526 FT; 3.1 RB; 4.5 pts (3 starts)
F Tope Arikawe (6-8 220 Jr). 11.0 min.; .455 FG; .500 FT; 3.7 RB; 3.7 pts (3 games played)

Team very dangerous when hitting 3s (make 7.9/g) and is a strong ORB team (10.8/g). Roosevelt Smart a dangerous guard, takes 7.5 3s/g and doesn’t miss FTs. Team plagued by foul trouble (Simmons has fouled out 3X and greatly limits his PT) and hurt by opponent FTs while, aside from Smart, shoot only .593 FTs themselves.

+2 great consistent posts. Compared to NTX’s inconsistent performances against widely varying opponents. Who will show up for them tomorrow? Hopefully the team that struggled against lesser competition.

Absolutely - a win would definitely create an incredible energy/buzz for the game next Thursday at the Ted against WKY. And then if we could get that win, only imagine the energy for the Marshall game on Sat - perhaps a sellout? Exciting to think about - but I guess it all starts with NTX tomorrow. LET’S GO MONARCHS!

Im planning on road tripping down for the MTSU/UAB homestead. Hoping the Monarchs will be undefeated in CUSA play when I get there. (and when I leave :) )

Another tough week ahead. Neither game is a gimme.

No game is a gimme. When will you guys get that? Mother f Wofford beats a team full of HS all Americans at North Carolina and yet folks act like we are supposed to steam roll teams we play. There are hundreds of great players in the NCAA . You have to earn every victory. I'm proud of the guys being 12-3.

Survive and advance. Those two games should not have been that "tough", but I'll take it.
