RUSTON, La. (AP) - Javion Hamlet hit a floater in the lane as time expired and North Texas defeated Louisiana Tech 51-50 for the Mean Green's first win in Ruston since 1952. The Bulldogs took a 50-49 lead on Amorie Archibald's layup with five seconds left. Hamlet went from deep in the backcourt to just inside the foul line where he left his feet and lofted the ball over the defender just as time expired. The ball then swished through the net. Umoja Gibson scored 15 points to lead the Mean Green. Amori Archibald drilled five 3-pointers and scored 17 points for the Bulldog.
