"I am really proud of the team for rebounding after a very difficult week in Waco and a tough opening round yesterday," said North Texas coach Jeff Mitchell. "They had the chance to just check it in, and they didn't.  Hopefully, this will give us some positive energy to put in a really good effort in the final round."
