MBB: North Texas Still Perfect in Overtime Thriller

North Texas (7-0) is off to its best start in 50 years where in 1968-69 the Mean Green started their season undefeated in seven wins. The matchup against the Maine Black Bears (0-5) took an overtime period to get it done but a win is a win. Still, it is quite alarming to see the Mean Green go cold in their shooting for more than nine minutes to finish out regulation. This team plays some solid defense though that will bail this team out of tough situations. The Mean Green also shot 83.3% from the charity stripe to keep extending

MBB: North Texas Routs Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks on Strong Defense

He was seven of nine (77.8%!) from the floor including a single made three -- his first and only attempt of the season and as far as the blog

He was eight of 13 (61.5%) from the floor and was six of 11 (54.5%) from 3-point range. He also added four total rebounds, four assists, and

WBB: #11 Texas’s Height Too Much to Overcome for the Mean Green

In a match-up of "Teacher versus Student" where Jalie Mitchell's Mean Green faced off against former Mean Green coach Karen Aston's (2011 15-16) University of Texas squad. Mitchell was coached by Aston when she was a player (1998 - 2002) and also served as an assistant coach (2011) for the one season Aston was the head coach for North Texas in addition to the University of Texas (2012-2015). Player of the game goes to senior Terriell Bradley who was six of 16 (37.5%) from the floor, three of seven (42.9%) from 3-point land, and made all three of her shots from the

MBB: North Texas Defeats Hawaii to Win Rainbow Classic Tournament

North Texas (4-0) defeated the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors (2-1) 68-51 to sweep the tournament and bring home another piece of hardware to add to their collection. https://twitter.com/MeanGreenMBB/status/1062022522579767296 It's a bit tough to give a single player PotG recognition when there were two players scored 13 points and it was a total team effort to putting the Warriors away. Jorden Duffy scored 13 points on four of 10 (40%) shooting from the floor, two of six (33.3%) from behind the arc, and made all three of his shots from the free throw line. He also added seven total rebounds, and an assist on 32

Despite foul trouble through much of the game, sophomore Zach Simmons posted a career best 23 points. He was 10 of 12 (83.3%!) from the floor and made all three of his free throws on 27 minutes of action giving him .85 points per minute. He also picked up six rebounds, an assist,

MBB: North Texas Routs the Lumberjacks in First Game of the Rainbow Classic

North Texas continued its hot three point shooting draining 15 3-pointers against the Div. II Humboldt State Lumberjacks lead by redshirt freshman Umoja Gibson who shot a perfect six of six from behind the arc. Overall, the Mean Green shot 53.1% from the floor.
