DENTON, Texas (AP) -- Tony Mitchell recorded the 15th
double-double of his career Thursday night with 29 points and 15
rebounds to lead North Texas past Troy 76-59.
Mitchell was 10 for 12 from the free-throw line and added four
blocks to his stat sheet against Troy.
North Texas (6-9, 1-3 Sun Belt) led 13-0 to begin the game

never able to recover.

shots. Jordan Williams had 12 points and six rebounds for North
Texas while teammate Roger Franklin had 10 points, six rebounds
