The North Texas Mean Green will face off against the Fordham Rams at 11:30 a.m. ET on Sunday at Barclays Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W'.

North Texas unfortunately witnessed the end of their three-game winning streak on Tuesday. They took a 69-64 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Broncos.

Despite the defeat, North Texas had strong showings from Jason Edwards, who scored 20 points along with 3 steals, and CJ Noland, who scored 12 points along with 4 steals. Noland continues to roll, besting his previous point total in each of the last three games he's played.

Meanwhile, the point spread may have favored Fordham last Wednesday, but the final result did not. They fell just short of the Highlanders by a score of 80-77. Fordham got off to an early lead (up 12 with 4:30 left in the first quarter), but sadly they weren't able to maintain that momentum.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: North Texas have been smashing the glass this season, having averaged 35.4 rebounds per game.
