Hannah Christian scored nine points, while Sara Stanley had a team-high nine rebounds. Alisha Filmore led the Mustangs with 16 points, while Akil Simpson had eight rebounds.

The difference proved to be at the free-throw line as SMU was 23 of 36, while the Mean Green was 13 of 14. UNT was able to stay in the game by hitting 6 of 13 3-point shots to the Mustangs’ 0 for 7.

The Mean Green led 29-28 at halftime, but SMU shot 54 percent in the second half to grab the victory.

UNT next plays at Alabama at 6:30 p.m. Monday.
