Scoring a season-high for points in a game, the Mean Green women’s basketball team controlled the University of Denver Pioneers throughout and won 93-74 on Tuesday.

UNT (5-5) shot 52 percent on field goals in the bounce-back effort from Sunday’s 75-69 loss against the University of Northern Colorado. A 13-1 scoring run early in the first half set the tone of the game, which sent them into halftime with a 47-32 lead for the highest scoring half of the season for the team.

Shooting 64 percent in the second half, the Mean Green extended the lead to as many as 26 points. Denver (1-9) had trouble around the rim, being outscored by UNT 48-24 in the paint, while losing the rebounding battle 44-27 as well.

Sophomore forward Alexis Hyder led in scoring with 16 points in 19 minutes, while junior guard Janis Peterson continued her hot shooting with 15 points and three steals after scoring a career-high 27 points in the previous game. Senior forward Ash’Lynne Evans posted a double-double, her first since her sophomore season, with 14 points and 12 rebounds.

The game concludes a four-game road trip which the team finished 2-2. Up next is a three-game home stand with Southern Methodist University coming to the Super Pit on Saturday at noon.
