James Reaches 1,000 Point Plateau As Mean Green Win 83-73




DENTON, Tex. -- The North Texas women's basketball team hit a season-high 10 3-pointers en route to an 83-73 victory over Texas-Pan American Wednesday night at the Super Pit. Senior Brittney James scored 14 points and surpassed the 1,000 point mark for her career, becoming just the 12th player in school history to do so.

The 10 3-pointers are tied for the fourth most in school history and the most in a single game since by North Texas since January 7, 2007.

North Texas (2-3) held a 20 point lead with 18:56 to go in the game, but had to endure an onslaught of 3-pointers from the Broncs (0-4) who cut the lead to five points with 6:21 to go, to hang on for the victory.

Bianca Torre of UTPA led all scorers with 21 points, while the Mean Green finished with five players scoring double figures, led by Jasmine Godbolt's 16 and Niq'ky Hughes' 15.

North Texas came out on fire, converting on 54.5 percent of their shots in the first half, taking a 12-point lead into halftime.

With 16 points and 12 rebounds, Godbolt became the second fastest in Mean Green history to record a double-double as a true freshman. Her double-double is the first by a North Texas player this season.

Senior guard Brittney James became the 12th player at North Texas to record 1,000 points in her career with a 3-pointer at the 5:37 mark of the second half. James finished the game with 14 points and six assists.

North Texas will head to Birmingham, Ala., to take part in the UAB Classic on Friday, where they will face off with UAB at 3 p.m.
