The Texas State women’s basketball team hosted the University of Texas at Arlington last night.
Conference play continued last night for the Bobcats as they took on the UT Arlington Mavericks. As the game started with a slow pace with Texas State going into halftime leading the Mavericks 26-23, the game’s pace went in a different direction in the second half. Both teams went back-and-forth resulting in four different tied scores throughout the half. With three minutes left in the game, Texas tate found itself down by nine, freshman guard Taeler Deer’s banked in a game-fying three pointer with ten seconds left, that ended up forcing overtime.
Texas State went on to outscore UT Arlington ten to three in the overtime period, winning 65-58, improving to 9-5 in conference play and 14-9 overall. Texas State coach Zenarae Antoine enjoyed the result of the game, but is looking to see how her team responds tomorrow against Georgia State.
“This is for them to enjoy tonight, they go to class tomorrow, we hit the floor again, it’s going to be really important to see our response, or time-out response, our break response, whatever you want to call it. That response, that consistency, is really going to show me, and show us and each other, how far we can go.”
The Bobcats will look to improve on their conference record tomorrow afternoon at two p.m. at Strahan Coliseum against the Georgia State Panthers.
