DENTON, Texas -- Chris Jones scored 16 points, helping North Texas dominate Division II opponent Cameron and roll to a 78-49 victory Friday night in the Mean Green's home opener.
Jones, a sophomore, was 8 of 9 from the field and added seven assists and five rebounds. Jacob Holmen came off the bench to score 14 points and Alzee Williams had 12 for the Mean Green (2-2), who went on a 35-3 run spanning the end of the first half and the beginning of the second and cruised from there.
Asaad Robinson was the lone bright spot for the Aggies (1-1), who shot just 27 percent from the field. Robinson came off the bench to score 20 points and was 7 of 14, including 4 of 8 on 3-pointers. The rest of the team was a combined 10 of 50.
The Mean Green won their 10th consecutive home opener.

Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
