'They whipped us': UTA men's basketball team falls to North Texas 77-66

Senior guard Brian Warren’s 18-point outing wasn't enough for the men’s basketball team (4-5) as it fell to the University of North Texas 77-66 Monday at College Park Center.

UTA picked up its first and only lead when it went ahead 4-0 in the game’s opening minutes. The Mean Green responded with an 8-0 scoring run to gain a lead, and they never looked back.

The Mavericks went down by double digits in the first half as North Texas defended UTA’s interior offense well. UTA scored six points in the paint and shot 31% from the field before going into the halftime break with a 35-23 deficit.
