Thoughts on UNT tennis heading to NCAAs again, other Monday notes

UNT came through in the final of the Sun Belt Conference tennis tournament on Sunday, which should surprise exactly no one. The Mean Green won the tournament last year and knocked off Georgia State this year 4-2.

UNT had a tougher match in the semifinals when Barbora Vykydalova won the decisive match in a 4-3 win over South Alabama.

So now UNT heads off to the NCAA tournament again.

UNT has been pretty consistent in getting to the national tournament the last several years. The challenge now is winning a match. UNT is ranked 60th nationally. The team UNT is matched up against will be key.

UNT usually has a watching party for the unveiling of the NCAA pairings. I’ll post it on the blog when I find out when it will be.

And in other Olympic sports, the UNT soccer team knocked off rival SMU over the weekend, 1-0. It’s spring, but it’s always worth mentioning when UNT beats its hated rival. Amber Haggerty scored the lone goal.

I wrote last night about UNT landing Wyoming JC forward Armani Flannigan

Despite landing a player it needs to address its holesmin the frontcourt, UNT has several spots left to fill. Some of the prospects UNT was after at one time or another came off the board in the last day or so.

City College of San Francisco point guard Quincy Smith signed with Hawaii. Let’s face it: Hawaii > Denton.

Howard JC small forward Cameron Forte signed with Georgia. Forte’s name came up once in connection with UNT. Howard’s head coach said UNT was never really involved, but he was a name that was floating around out there.
