DENTON, Tex. (12/19/07) The final non-conference game of the season takes place tonight for the North Texas women’s basketball team and as they face one of the top teams in the country in No. 20 Oklahoma State from the Super Pit. The two teams last met in 2001 in the WNIT in Stillwater. Oklahoma State leads the series with the Mean Green 9-1.
Oklahoma State is the second ranked team of the year for the Mean Green and the ninth ranked opponent that North Texas will face in the last five years. The Mean Green has never defeated a Top 25 opponent in school history. The last time North Texas faced a team ranked at home was last season when No. 19 Middle Tennessee held off North Texas for a 70-56 win.
The trio of Amber Jackson, Brittney James, and Jo Hall has started to show how dangerous they are when clicking. The three combined to score 43 of the 61 North Texas points against Valparaiso. For the year the three are making up 57 percent of the North Texas offense.
The three are also on a record pace of their own. Jackson is currently hitting over 53 percent of her shots which would be the third best single season shooting percentage in North Texas history. James is on pace to score the most points by a sophomore at North Texas since the 1993-94 season. Hall is going to shatter her career-highs in points, rebounds, field goals, assists, and steals.
Tip-off is slated for 7 p.m.
