Reflections and Notes:

Men’s Basketball:

  • Men’s basketball currently sits 1-5 to start the season. The record is a loss away from its worst mark since 2013, when it began the year at 1-6. Last season, the Owls started 3-3 under then first-year head coach Michael Curry.

Women’s Basketball:

  • With its fifth win, women’s basketball is now off to its best start since the 1991-1992 season (4-1).


  • Offensive coordinator Brian Wright was fired by the team Sunday night. His dismissal ends a four year tenure with the team as offensive coordinator. Wright had also served as assistant coach in 2013, leading the team to a 4-0 record.
