North Texas men grab early lead, win third straight

UNT men 75 Southeastern Louisiana 61

Alzee Williams scored 18 points and Jordan Williams added 15 more along with 10 rebounds as North Texas defeated Southeastern Louisiana 75-61 on Saturday night for its third straight win.

Chris Jones contributed 14 points, and Keith Coleman scored 10 for the Mean Green (5-3).

UNT took a 41-27 lead at halftime on the strength of 50 percent shooting.

“I thought our guys came out tonight with the right mindset,” UNT coach Tony Benford said. “They played with a lot of energy and passion early and played hard. I thought we did a great job defensively in the first half. I thought offensively we executed and took good shots.”

Though its shooting prowess tailed off a little in the second half, the Mean Green was up by 18 at one point and never allowed the Lions (3-3) to get within single digits. Southeastern Louisiana shot only 34.4 percent for the game, including just 3 of 16 from 3-point range.

UNT had a 45-37 edge on the boards with Colin Voss grabbing 12 rebounds. Jordan Williams’ double-double was the first of the junior’s career.
