Transfer Grace Goodhart Receives NCAA Clearance
Sophomore Guard Will Play This Season
DENTON – North Texas sophomore transfer guard Grace Goodhart has been given clearance by the NCAA and is eligible to play this season.
The 5-foot-9 Sunnyvale, Texas, native transferred from Loyola University Chicago to the Mean Green in May.
At the Missouri Valley Conference, Loyola, Goodhart played in all 30 games for the Ramblers and averaged 6.6 points per game. She led the team with 40 made 3-pointers, which would have been the second-most on North Texas' team. At the conclusion of the season she was named to the Missouri Valley Conference All-Freshman Team.
The 2015 Sunnyvale High School graduate was named 2015 TABC Class 3A Player of the Year. She was a McDonald’s High School All-American nominee and led her Raiders high school team to a 3A state championship.
The addition of Goodhart to the active roster now gives the Mean Green 14 players. Last year in head coach Jalie Mitchell’s first season with her alma mater, North Texas had 10 players on the roster to start the season and struggled with injuries down the stretch. Despite the thin roster North Texas still managed to more than double its win total from the previous season.
The Mean Green defeated Texas Woman’s University 59-47 on Sunday in their lone exhibition game. They open the regular season Friday at Arkansas Little Rock in the first round of the NCAA Preseason WNIT.
