DENTON, Texas - It's a special night in Denton on Saturday as the North Texas women's basketball team will be donning pink uniforms for the first time in school history as they host ULM at 5 p.m.
The Mean Green will also have pink shoelaces while raising money throughout the Super Pit during the game for breast cancer awareness. The "Pink Zone" game is part of the WBCA's initiative to help raise money for the Kay Yow Foundation and raise awareness for breast cancer.
The Mean Green is looking to bounce back after a 79-61 loss to South Alabama on Thursday and end their six-game losing streak. ULM took the first matchup earlier in the year 76-65 over North Texas in Monroe on January 20. North Texas and ULM have split the last four games of the series.
The last Mean Green win against ULM came last season on December 15 at the Super Pit. At home against ULM the Mean Green is 3-12. North Texas has won three of the last four games at home against ULM.
North Texas hit seven 3-pointers against South Alabama and moved into the top-10 in a single season for 3-pointers. The Mean Green has 113 as a team, which is tied for the 8th most in school history. North Texas can rapidly climb the charts as with five more 3-pointers they will move into 4th all-time in a single season.
The last two seasons at North Texas have produced the No. 2 and No. 3 spots in the record books and this season the Mean Green has a chance to break the all-time record, which is 134. North Texas needs 22 more 3-pointers to set the new record.
