The Hilltoppers go on a mammoth 12-0 run to close the half after North Texas cuts the lead to as few as two.
A Juan Pattillo reverse dunk from Kahlil McDonald got the crowd on its feet before a Sergio Kerusch 30-foot triple at the horn got Diddle even louder – giving the Hilltoppers a 14-point advantage.
Pattillo leads the way for WKU with 12 points, while Kerusch has 11. Tops shooting 17 of 31 for the game, UNT 15 of 30.
Big minutes off the bench from Teeng Akol – Cliff Dixon has not played tonight.
