Mean Green guards need help

March, 8, 2011
HOT SPRINGS, Ark. -- The winningest duo in North Texas basketball history has carried the load so far in the Sun Belt final.

Guards Tristan Thompson and Josh White have five points apiece after a dozen minutes. The rest of the UNT roster has a total of five points.

That's good enough for a 15-15 tie in an ugly game. At some point, somebody else on the UNT roster will need to take a share of the scoring burden.

Thompson, who had 78 points in the first three games this week, broke the Sun Belt tournament record with a 3-pointer in the opening minute. But it's been tough for him since then. He's made only one of his other five shots from the floor, including a couple of missed layups after which he looked to the refs for a whistle.
