UNT falls in NCAA Tournament

NEW ORLEANS- The Mean Green gave #2-seeded Memphis all they could handle for much of their first round game, but the Tigers pulled away late and ended North Texas's season, 73-58, earlier today.

It was UNT's first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1988.

North Texas qualified for the tournament by winning the Sun Belt Conference Tournament.

The Texas Longhorns play New Mexico State later tonight at 6:25 p.m.

You can watch that game on KXII.
