Here are a couple of random tidbits and thoughts on a Wednesday night:
– The video at the top of this blog is of Tony Mitchell hitting a buzzer-beating shot for the Pistons yesterday. Mitchell went 4-for-4 with two blocks, two assists, a steal and a rebound. He will just keep getting better. He has too much talent not to, not to mention a reason to play now.
– I have mentioned this before, but there seems to be some question about it. Defensive end Quenton Brown will play at some point this season, if he can. He is going to lose a year of eligibility whether he plays or not.
– And that brings us to another thought. JUCO signing day for midterm recruits is going to be here before we know it. This year’s midterm period begins on Dec. 18, but most JUCO players will commit before then and line up where they are headed. With so many key seniors on defense, it will be interesting to see if UNT hits the JUCO ranks hard this time around.
– On the hoops front, this story about a UNT recruiting target came across the old Google alert today.
