I picked up a few items of interest on the basketball front today. Seeing as it is a long way to the beginning of two-a-days in the fall, we will spread this out a bit over the next couple of days.
First off, I’m sticking by my assertion that the eagle (big recruit) has landed in women’s basketball. The sticks in the nest are being arranged just so to make the landing a little more comfortable.
UNT has a good team coming back despite the departure of a few key players, including Loryn Goodwin, who transferred, and Sara Stanley, who graduated. By the way, Loryn, if you are reading this, your trophy for being named to the All-Sun Belt Freshman of the Year and third team all-conference is available for pickup over at the Super Pit.
Just a gut feeling here, but Petersen could be on to something next year with the team he is putting together.
On the men’s basketball front, former Texas Tech recruit Wannah Bail is still out there and has not signed. UNT could get a visit, but the competition to land him will be tough.
UNT still has a spot to give after Zach Peters decided to sign with Arizona.
There are still a ton of players out there who are looking for a spot where they can use the NCAA loophole that allows seniors who have graduated to transfer and use their final year of eligibility.
I will have some additional thoughts on some of the guys UNT has coming in for next season on the blog over the next few days.
And be sure to pick up a copy of tomorrow’s paper that will include a feature on UNT’s women’s 400 relay team.
