COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Maurice Aniefiok led the way with 16 points and Alzee Williams followed with 14 as North Texas stunned Texas A&M 61-41 Tuesday.
The Mean Green shot 51 percent (25 of 49) from the field, compared to 30 percent (15 of 50) for the Aggies. A&M (8-4) struggled from the floor for a second consecutive game, after shooting 26.9 percent in a 64-52 setback to Oklahoma in Houston on Dec. 21.
The middling Aggies had found solace at home until Tuesday, in having won all eight of their previous home contests. But UNT (8-5) jumped on the unsuspecting Aggies early, and roared to a 36-19 halftime lead. The Aggies, who were 4 of 18 (22 percent) behind the 3-point line and 7 of 15 (47 percent) from the free-throw line, couldn't overcome their shooting woes.
Alex Caruso led Texas A&M with 10 points.
