DENTON, Texas - The North Texas women's basketball team is home to face FIU on Thursday night at 5 p.m. at the Super Pit. North Texas is looking to end a five-game losing streak and pick up its first win in Sun Belt Conference play this season.
The Golden Panthers enter the game with a 6-11 mark and a 1-2 league record and recently ended a losing streak of their own at seven games.
North Texas offensively is the having one of its best year's on record. The Mean Green is averaging 67.1 points a game, which is third best in the Sun Belt Conference, but is on pace for the highest scoring average since the 2001-02 season.
In the last two years the Mean Green has posted top-10 seasons in total points with 2,060 in 2008-09 and 2,025 last season. At the current pace, North Texas would put up another 2,000 points season with 2,013. It would be the first-time in school history that North Texas would score more than 2,000 points in three straight seasons.
Jasmine Godbolt last season had a tough time against Western Kentucky, scoring only six points but grabbing 15 rebounds. This year she put her 13th career double-double against the Toppers with 15 points and 14 rebounds. The 15 points came after she was held to a career-low two points at Middle Tennessee.
It was Godbolt's fourth double-double of the season as eight of her rebounds were on the offensive end, which ties a career-high for Godbolt. She now has five games of grabbing eight offensive rebounds in her career.
