UNT is sitting tonight on the final night of the Sun Belt Conference regular season.
I’m thoroughly enjoying it. It gives me a rare Saturday night off.
But is it a good thing for UNT?
Mike Petersen has mentioned a couple of times that it’s just weird to do it that way. It is a little odd, but not entirely bad for UNT.
The teams are taking the weekend off and will have fresh legs going into the Sun Belt tournament next week. Both teams are going to need fresh legs for what would be a long run to the title game, if they can make it that far.
One has to worry about rust, but that would be a secondary concern at this point.
Going into the tournament on a win is a bonus for both teams.
All around, it’s not too bad a deal for the Mean Green.
