What to look for tonight in the UNT-BYU game

UNT will tip off its game against BYU out in Utah.

I’m at the kitchen table here in Denton, but here are some thoughts about what to look for tonight.

– Can UNT handle BYU on the perimeter?

Tyler Haws leads BYU with an average of 23.7 points a game and goes 6-5. Matt Carlino is adding 19.0 points a game, but is a little smaller at 6-2. Haws will have a size advantage against UNT and Carlino can flat score. UNT has a couple of smaller guards in Chris Jones and Brandan Walton who play a lot. Can UNT handle those guys?

– Will being on the road in the cold at altitude hurt UNT?

Yeah, I know the game is indoors, but outside of Walton, a lot of UNT’s guys have rarely driven through a snowstorm to play. UNT used to struggle at Denver in the altitude. Walton played in Casper, Wyo. What about the rest of UNT’s guys?

– Will UNT’s athleticism pay dividends?

UNT is really athletic. Will that make a difference in tonight’s game at BYU. We are about to find out.
