CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Tony Mitchell had 21 points and nine rebounds and Roger Franklin turned in a double-double as North Texas defeated Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis 80-66 Monday in the consolation round of the NIT Season Tip-Off.

Mitchell's scoring output marked a season high for the Sun Belt Conference Preseason Player of the Year, while Franklin's 13 points and 10 rebounds gave him his first double-double since posting three straight last January.
