After a big upset win over Creighton University on Sunday, the Mean Green men’s basketball team suffered a disappointing 70-67  home loss to Prairie View A&M University on Tuesday.

The Mean Green (6-5) fell behind early, but went on a 20-6 run to end the first half with a 34-27 lead over Prairie View A&M (2-10) at halftime.

North Texas built up a 47-36 lead midway through the second half, but the Panthers shot 44.8 percent from the field in the second half and 50 percent from the three-point line and eventually took a 64-59  lead with 3:33 left to play. The Mean Green cut that lead to 70-67 and had a chance to tie things up with 3.7 seconds left, but senior guard Jordan Williams missed a three at the buzzer that would have sent the game into overtime.

Williams had 15 points and seven rebounds, while sophomore guard DeAndre Harris had 11 points. The Mean Green turned the ball over 17 times in the loss.

Next up, the team will be on the road to play Texas Tech University on Dec. 29. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
