The Mean Green women’s basketball team snapped a six game losing streak and notched its second win of the season by beating Rice University 53-48  on Saturday at the Super Pit.

The Mean Green (2-12, 1-2) came out shooting well on the offensive end after struggling in its previous few games, shooting 50 percent from the field in the first eight minutes. But North Texas’ shooting diminished throughout the first half, as Rice ended up taking a 27-23 lead into halftime.

The team took the lead as the second half began thanks to six quick points by senior guard BreAnna Dawkins. The game was tied at 45-45 with almost a minute left, but Dawkins hit a three-pointer to put the Mean Green up 48-45 and helped seal the win.

Dawkins had 15 points, all of which came in the second half. Sophomore guard Candice Adams also had 15 points while senior forward Briesha Wynn added 12 points.

Next up, the Mean Green will playing the University of North Carolina – Charlotte at the Super Pit on Jan. 15. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
