The North Texas Mean Green and the Sam Houston Bearkats are set to clash at 4 p.m. ET March 19 at The Super Pit in the second round of the NIT. North Texas is out to keep their seven-game home win streak alive.
The Alcorn State Braves typically have all the answers at home, but on Wednesday the Mean Green proved too difficult a challenge.
