PHOENIX (AP) — Tylor Perry had 17 points in North Texas’ 60-58 win over Grand Canyon on Saturday night.

Grand Canyon scored the last three points of the game from the free-throw line but then missed its last two shots from distance to seal it for North Texas.

GCU led 53-50 with 5:03 remaining in the game after a Josh Baker three-pointer, but North Texas went on a 10-2 run to grab control of the affair late at Footprint Center.

Still, the Antelopes had chances, as Jovan Blacksher Jr. and Baker missed potential game-winning shots from deep within the final 46 seconds.

Perry shot 5-for-13 (2-for-6 from 3-point range) and 5-of-6 from the free-throw line for the Mean Green (8-2). Kai Huntsberry scored 16 points, going 6-of-16 from the floor, including 0-for-4 from distance and 4-for-4 from the line. Abou Ousmane was 6-of-14 shooting and 2-of-4 from the free-throw line to finish with 14 points.

The Antelopes (7-4) were led in scoring by Rayshon Harrison, who finished with 23 points. Grand Canyon also got nine points from Chance McMillian. Yvan Ouedraogo also had seven points and 11 rebounds.
