It was a big win for the 14-16 Bobcats as they took on the 16-15 UT Arlington Mavericks in the first round of the Men’s Sun Belt Conference Championship bracket. It was a closely contested ball game throughout as the Bobcats narrowly escaped the first half with a 4 point edge, 33-29.
Assistant Coach Jim Shaw had this to say on the team’s win, “We changed a few things up. Like go zone, go under ball screens, and we said, ‘Hey if they’re gonna beat us from outside then they’re gonna beat us from outside cause the first two match ups I know we shot poorly but they shot even worse than we did from the 3-point line.”
The second half proved to be just as intense with the Mavericks competing for their lives.The Bobcats extended their lead to 10 after an Ethan Montalvo 3 with 10:50 left in the game. The Mavericks came storming back tying the game at 56 with 4:05 left in the game. However Gant’s 19 points and Naylor’s 15 points for the Bobcats would be just enough to make the difference winning 68-62. “Emani Gant, to answer your question directly, came out and played like an all conference player tonight and that’s what we need from him and that’s what we need from the other guys.”
The Bobcats advance to take on the 19-12 UL Lafayette at 5pm and will be heard right here on 89 9 KTSW
