The Mean Green women’s basketball team’s season came to an end Tuesday night in El Paso as the team struggled to keep up with Louisiana Tech University in the first round of the Conference USA tournament, losing 77-59.

Lousiana Tech (11-19, 6-11) held the Mean Green (12-18, 6-11) to 27.3 percent shooting in the first half while converting on 40.7 percent of its own shots. Down 36-29 at halftime, UNT wraps up this season with a 0-14 record when trailing at the half.

The Mean Green was outscored in both halves and had each scoring run matched with a Louisiana Tech run. At one point in the second half, the Mean Green trimmed the lead to five points, but then the Lady Techsters came back and built the lead to 21 with nine minutes remaining.

Senior guard Hannah Christian led the Mean Green by scoring a career-high 15 points and grabbed seven rebounds in her last game with UNT, while junior forward Briesha Wynn put up 14 points and nine rebounds. The Mean Green struggled with its outside shooting and only made four of its 31 attempts.

The team slightly improved on its last season overall record in the Sun Belt Conference (11-19, 10-11) and is now 5-4 all time in the first round of conference tournaments in program history. The team will lose four players (Christian, Ash’Lynne Evans, Laura McCoy and Desiree Nelson) to graduation.
