I caught up with Mike Petersen yesterday to talk about tonight’s Conference USA home opener against Marshall.
UNT is still looking for its first C-USA hoops win after both the Mean Green men and women were swept on the first weekend in league play.
The UNT women are in a better spot considering both their losses came on the road at Middle Tennessee — where no one ever wins — and Charlotte, one of the better teams in the league.
We talked about the game in the paper today as well, but it ended up getting buried under the story of Mike Nelson riding the motorcycle off into retirement (more on that later).
UNT should have a good shot at breaking through tonight. Acheil Tac, one of UNT’s key forwards, played at Charlotte after missing the Mean Green’s loss to MTSU.
