NT made the transition to Conference USA in 2013 and advanced to three straight conference tournament finals, winning the title in 2015.
North Texas head coach John Hedlund continued his winning tradition in his 22nd season. He started the season by capturing his 300th career win and finished it by capturing the Mean Green's third straight Conference USA regular-season conference title.
