Prospective Student-Athlete Information - Women's Basketball
We are excited about your interest in the University of North Texas and Mean Green women's basketball, a program which has a rich history and an exciting future.
Despite accumulating a 5-24 overall record in the 2014-15 season, the North Texas women's basketball team showed heart and focus up until the final buzzer on March 7. Seniors BreAnna Dawkins (10.8 ppg) and Briesha Wynn (10.7 ppg), who combined for 41.5-percent of the team's scoring, were true leaders on the court for the Mean Green. Moving forward, fans should be excited about the consistent improvement of the team's sophomores and juniors, as well as five incoming freshman who will join the squad.
On April 9, 2015, Jalie Mitchell returned to her alma mater to become the eighth head coach in Mean Green women's basketball program history. It is her first-career head coaching position and a dream job for the best player in school history.

Recognized as one of the finest college basketball facilities in the nation, the Super Pit is home to both the University of North Texas men's and women's basketball teams. Built in 1973, the coliseum is designed for multi-purpose use and is frequently the setting for concerts and theater stage productions as well as athletic events. In 2013, the "E" Practice Facility opened, providing the men's and women's basketball teams with their own practice court.
Named for its benefactor, alumnus Ernie Kuehne, who spearheaded the fund raising to build a practice facility for the men's and women's basketball teams, softball, and golf, the "E" is located in the Mean Green Village on the west side of Bonnie Brae St. across the driveway from the Volleyball Center. The facility's centerpiece is a full-length basketball court, complete with lockerrooms and scoreboard, allowing Mean Green basketball players to practice at any time.
