Good day for Tony Mitchell and UNT golfers (after slow start)

I didn’t sit and watch the broadcast, but it sounded like former UNT standout Tony Mitchell had a big day at the NBA Scouting Combine.

His windmill dunk was the talk of the camp.

And this should surprise, uhh, no one.

Mitchell has that kind of talent and is likely moving back into the first round, if not close to the lottery. UNT head coach Tony Benford called it before Mitchell left for Chicago.

You have to feel good for Mitchell after what was a brutal senior season for UNT as a team. He’s a good guy.

The combine continues through the weekend.

It didn’t turn out to be a bad day for the UNT golf team either, not after a tough start in the NCAA regional out in Pullman, Wash.

There is no way to tell how a course sets up, just looking at it online, but it seems pretty obvious that UNT started out on the tougher nine holes today. The Mean Green dropped to near the bottom of the 14-team standings right off the bat, but came back to move into a tie for eighth place with Virginia Tech at 277, three shots out of fifth place.

The top five teams advance.

UNT will have to jump three teams and Tech to get into the top five, but that is within the realm of possibility.

Marco Scarola led the charge late with three birdies, an eagle and another birdie to finish the round. He’s in a tie for eighth at 6-under-par.

The tournament will continue tomorrow.
