Saturday was a rough day in the basketball realm of Texas State sports.
Both the mens’ and women’s team suffered defeats at the hands of UT-Arlington. Doug Davalos‘ squad fell 73-53 in the new College Park Center, while Zenarae Antoine‘s bunch lost by 16 (61-45) at home.
Earlier in the day, the Bobcat women struggled offensively against the Mavericks. Texas State turned the ball over 24 times, shot 22.6 percent from the field (12-of-53) and only had one player in double figures (Ashley Ezeh, 14 points).
“I felt that we never got into a good offensive flow,” Antoine said.
In Arlington, the Bobcat men had their hands full with a UTA team that won its previous 14 games in a row. Texas State never led as the Mavericks jumped out to an 8-0 lead, opening it up to as many as 15 points in the first half.
The Bobcats were led in scoring by sophomore forward Reid Koenen, who sent home 16 points.
Texas State now must win four of its last five games in order to make the conference tournament.
