North Texas Loses To UTSA, 70-58
Mean Green Fall To 11-10
Feb. 2, 2018
SAN ANTONIO -- UT-San Antonio opened the second-half on an 11-0 run to cushion its three-point halftime lead and come away with the 70-58 win over the North Texas women's basketball team Friday night in the Convocation Center.
Another slow start by the Mean Green (11-10, 2-7 C-USA) put the Roadrunners (4-17, 2-7 C-USA) in the driver's seat early. North Texas trailed by five points after the first quarter and by as many as 17 late third quarter.
A total of 53 fouls were called Friday. UNT made just 13 of its 26 free throw shots while UTSA made 22.
Free throws and 3-pointers were the big difference Friday.
North Texas couldn't stop the Roadrunner's sharpshooter Carlie Heineman, who was a perfect 5-for-5 from deep. UTSA as a team made six of its seven 3-point attempts while UNT hit 3-of-11.
The Mean Green's ace Terriell Bradley had another strong showing, as she finished with a game-high 19 points and was one rebound shy of a double-double, but she was held scoreless in the third quarter as the Mean Green were outscored 22-8 and saw their deficit balloon.
North Texas strives on committing l2 or less turnovers per game and only had nine Friday and forced 26 but every time it seemed the Mean Green were stealing momentum back with their defense UTSA had an answer, typically with free throws or a 3-pointer.
North Texas did receive a nice spark off the bench from sophomore Adrianna Henderson who finished with a career-high 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting but no other Mean Green player finished with more than seven points.
North Texas has a week off to regroup as they travel to Miami and face FIU on Feb. 8 at 6:00 p.m. CT.
MEAN GREEN QUICK SHOTS
- Adrianna Henderson's previous career-high was 10 points, which she accomplished her freshman season.
