UNT Women’s Basketball Rolls to Victory Over Oklahoma Christian in Exhibition


Recommended Posts

DENTON, Texas – Led by Tommisha Lampkin’s 18 points, the North Texas women’s basketball defeated Oklahoma Christian, 100-63, Thursday in an exhibition match inside The Super Pit. 

The senior forward led all players in scoring with 18, 12 of which came in the second half. Lampkin also collected nine rebounds, including three on the offensive end. 

In head coach Jason Burton’s first home game at UNT, the Mean Green jumped out to an early 31-8 lead in the first quarter behind six 3-pointers, including three from Shamaryah Duncan and a pair from senior Maddie Cleary.

The offense continued to be efficient from the field in the first half as 10 players recorded a basket in the first 20 minutes of action, leading to a 52-26 halftime advantage.

The UNT lead grew to its largest of the game in the fourth quarter when Jaaucklyn Moore hit a 3-pointer to extend the lead to 88-47 with 6:07 left in the game.  

The two Texas A&M-Commerce transfers also posted double-digit performances with Dyani Robinson recording 14 and DesiRay Kernel adding 11 points. Cleary became the fourth player to reach double-digits for North Texas hitting her third 3-pointer of the game with 22 seconds left in the game.

While the offense shined on Thursday night, the Mean Green defense played its part, holding OCU to 35% from the field and just eight first quarter points while forcing 18 turnovers. 

North Texas opens the 2023 regular season inside The Super Pit against UNT Dallas at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 6.

Quoting Head Coach Jason Burton

On how this game gives the team confidence heading into regular season:

“Hopefully for one it gives our team confidence that what we’re doing works. That who we are is a team that is tough, that is everything we’ve been preaching as a staff and as leaders of our team. It helps cement some of the buy-in.”
