Nice byte from Eddie, but I'm not sure where he got his information on the us having one of the toughest non-conference schedules... Last time I checked UTPB and UT-Tyler were no basketball powerhouses. Anyway, it was a good win for us. It's too bad we couldn't pull another one out against Wyoming, but at least we were competitive and it wasn't a blowout like so many other of our non-conference games against the so-called "bigger" programs.

I'm going to do my best to catch the TWU game on Tuesday so I can try to get some pics of the banner raising.
