Its possible I could use OBS to stream it, but I’d have to host the stream somewhere.

I’m betting the over whatever it is. The under is too obvious.

That under will go down. I was expecting closer to 105.

I’m not sure if this is true but I read that this will be the first time in the Kenpom era that the two slowest teams have played each other.

Just received an alert that North Texas has installed new shots clocks in their arena……may be hard to officiate this game.

I don’t know much about North Texas, but it seems like they’re one of those undersized teams whose big guys are not that big and shoot from the perimeter. I wonder if we’ll see four-guard lineups with Jayden at the 5.

Don’t think the outcome of this game is that consequential but good opportunity for TB to tinker with things vs the type of small team that usually gives us fits in tourney and OOC play. We rarely are able to dictate those games with our size on offense and are forced to go small.

And if we are forced to go small with Jayden at the 5 for long stretches, not really liking our chances. Going small ball without any strong 3point shooters isn’t ideal

North Texas allows the 5th highest percentage of points allowed from 2 in the nation. Also, they allow the least percentage of points from 3.

Meanwhile we are 10th in percentage of points scored from 2 and are 342nd in percentage of points from 3. It will be a super interesting thing to watch how that plays out. Maybe we don’t even attempt a 3 pointer tomorrow!

They do play a 6’10” guy about 24 mpg. He played 34 minutes in their first round OT win.
