Wednesday night notes

Here are a few random quick-hitters on a Wednesday night:

– The UNT women’s soccer team beat Florida Atlantic 1-0 in the first round of the Sun Belt soccer tournament today. Carly McDowell scored and UNT hung on for the win in a game it pounded FAU’s net, but couldn’t put a second goal in. UNT will have to convert more often down the line, starting with a semifinal game against Western Kentucky tomorrow night.

– I wrote a story for tomorrow’s paper about what a big part of UNT’s team Brelan Chancellor is. Huge loss for UNT. Be sure to check it out.

– I stopped by basketball practice today. UNT looks really good heading into its exhibition game tomorrow. The improvement in Keith Coleman’s post game is pretty impressive — and important.
