CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The North Texas women's basketball team was held to just two points in the final four minutes as they lost 66-49 at Charlotte Thursday night.

Charlotte (15-4, 7-1 C-USA) picked it up defensively and allowed nine Mean Green points in the second quarter to cut the game to a one point North Texas lead at the half.

North Texas shot 47 percent in the first quarter and made three of its five 3-point attempts.

In the second, third and fourth quarters combined, North Texas shot 20 percent on 9-of-45 shooting. From deep, the Mean Green were 0-of-13.

Senior Terra Ellison recorded her second career double-double as she grabbed 10 rebounds and scored 14 points. Both of her double-doubles have come against Charlotte.
