The key to the game was the first half, as North Texas built a 30-10 halftime advantage. The Mean Green forced 22 Binghatmon turnovers and allowed just three field goals and 14 field goal attempts. The Mean Green blew the game open early with a 10-2 run in a span of 7:10 to take a 14-2 lead with 10:57 remaining in the first half. North Texas also went on a 10-0 run in a span of 6:10 to take a 28-9 lead with 1:30 remaining.
"North Texas really came out and forced the issue in the first half," head coach Rich Conover said. "We prepared well for them but they still were able to take control of the game. We adjusted well in the second half but by then it was too late."
For Binghamton, junior guard Rachel Laws (Wyncote, Pa.) netted a team-high nine points and pulled down a team-high nine rebounds.

North Texas was led by Kelsie Edwards, who scored a game-high 14 points.
