Listen To The Women's Basketball Game!




The North Texas women's basketball team concludes its three-game road trip with a visit to Western Kentucky tonight. Tipoff is set for 7 pm. All North Texas women's basketball games can be heard on KNTU (88.1).

The Mean Green had its three-game winning streak snapped by Louisiana-Lafayette but still sits atop the Sun Belt Conference West Division. The Lady Toppers enter the game riding an 11-game winning streak. The series between North Texas and Western Kentucky is tied at 3-3. North Texas won the first three games of the series but the Lady Toppers have won the last three games of the series. Western Kentucky defeated North Texas last season in Denton, 65-60. In Bowling Green the two teams have met twice, both Western Kentucky victories. The last North Texas win in the series was an 84-52 win in the semifinals of the 2002 Sun Belt Conference Tournament.

Freshman Talicia Sanders has made her mark as a starter and she has established herself as one of the best rebounders in the Sun Belt Conference. She ranks ninth in the league in boards and among freshman she is second in the Sun Belt Conference. Sanders also has a chance at the North Texas freshman record for most rebounds in a season. LaFreda Deckard holds the record of 7.1 rebounds a game, set during the 1994-95 season. Sanders is currently averaging 6.9 rebounds a game.
