Thoughts on UNT landing in the Mid-Major Top 25

Haven’t had a chance to talk about it until now, but UNT did open at No. 2 in NBC’s Mid-Major Poll

Creighton is No. 1.

UNT has Tony Mitchell. Creighton has Doug McDermott.

Both are top NBA prospects.

If you have been following along, you know what that means — one epic showdown when the teams play on Nov. 9.

UNT also plays Lehigh, which is tied for No. 8 in the poll.

The poll points out the same thing that I have been saying all along: UNT is flat loaded. Not only does this team have Tony Mitchell, it also has Chris Jones, Jordan Williams and a whole bunch of other top-notch talent.

This could be a really fun season to watch.
