The Super Pit, Denton, Texas
Up next: North Texas plays its final regular-season road game at South Alabama Saturday at 5:05 p.m. The Mean Green then finishes the regular season next Wednesday, February 27, at the Super Pit against Arkansas State. Game time is 7 p.m.
Alexis Hyder nearly had the eighth double-double of her freshman season by halftime Wednesday. She had 11 points and nine rebounds, leading the way to a 24-14 rebounding advantage. Hyder grabbed her 10th rebound early in the second half to pick up the double-double.
Wednesday's loss was the Mean Green's fifth straight at home, their longest home losing streak since a five-game skid in 2010-11, leaving North Texas with a 4-8 home record this season.
The Mean Green's three-point shooting, which had accounted for 34 three-point field goals in the last four games, went brutally cold Wednesday. North Texas made just two three-pointers, none in the second half.
