The Mean Green women’s basketball team lost a home game to the University of Texas at Arlington 46-38 on Sunday afternoon.

North Texas (1-8) struggled to shoot the ball throughout the game, and trailed 27-17 going into halftime. The second half was still rough offensively, but the Mean Green made a run to cut the UTA (5-3) lead to 40-35 with under four minutes to play. But, UTA held the Mean Green to just three points for the rest of the way to send the team to its eighth loss of the season.

The Mean Green shot 29.8 percent from the field for the game and 28.6 percent from the three-point line. However, the Mean Green defense was stout as it held UTA to 29.8 percent shooting for the game. The team was led by senior forward Briesha Wynn with 13 points and four rebounds. Junior forward Acheil Tac added six points and 12 rebounds.

The team will have a week off and will play again on Dec. 28 at home against the University of Denver. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m.
