DENTON, Texas (AP) — Chris Harrison-Docks scored 16 points and Aaron Cosby had 16 more, including five clutch free throws, and Western Kentucky slipped by North Texas 81-76 on Saturday night.

Justin Johnson had 13 points and Anton Waters and Nigel Snipes each finished with 10 for Western Kentucky (10-8, 2-3 Conference USA).
