Mean Green going dancing, win Sun Belt

Josh White's shot from near the free-throw line with 22 seconds remaining gave North Texas a 66-63 win over Troy on Tuesday night in the Sun Belt tournament championship game.
Troy (20-12) rallied from an eight-point deficit in the second
half, but the 5-foot-10 White's shot broke a 63-63 tie and sent the
Mean Green (24-8) to the NCAA tournament.
Brandon Hazzard drove to the basket trying to tie it in the
final seconds, but Shannon Shorter blocked the shot and it went out
of bounds off Troy. White was fouled with 2.9 seconds remaining and
made one free throw. After he missed his second attempt, Troy's
Michael Vogler tried a desperation shot from midcourt that wasn't
close.
Second-seeded North Texas has won 11 straight games and snapped a seven-game winning streak for top-seeded Troy.
