The Bobcat Women’s basketball team entered today’s game in the heat of a four-team race between themselves, South Alabama, Coastal Carolina, and Appalachian State for the sixth seed in the Sun Belt Conference. The top six teams get a first-round bye in the championship tournament in New Orleans, Louisiana from March 11-16. Going into the game, Head Coach Zenarae Antoine said “If we win on defense and rebounding is a piece of it, we’ll surely win the game.” Luckily for the Bobcats and Texas State fans alike, the ‘Cats did just that, dominating South Alabama in a decisive 77-45 victory.

The Bobcat victory was mainly backed by the senior point guard, Toshua Leavitt, who took over in the third quarter scoring 11 points including three three-pointers. Leavitt scored 20 points in total while going an efficient 7-12 from the floor and 6-9 from three-point land. While Leavitt continued to do what she has done for the ‘Cats for years, a new face had arguably the best game of her career so far.

Freshman center, Jaeda Reed, controlled the paint for the Bobcats, as she tallied two new career highs; 12 points and eight rebounds. Reed at times did this matchup against South Alabama’s Antoinette Lewis, one of the best centers in the Sun Belt. Reed wasn’t the only post player having a career game in Strahan though, as junior forward, Jazza Johns, dominated the glass by grabbing a career high 10 rebounds, which contributed to the Bobcats 43-33 advantage in the rebound battle. This was the Bobcats third 30 point victory this season, and the fifth time the ‘Cats have held their opponent to under 50 points.

This victory moves the Bobcats up to 14-15 on the season and sixth place in the Sun Belt Conference at 9-8. The Bobcats play their last game of the season against the number one team in the conference in UT-Arlington next career-high at 2 p.m. at Strahan Arena. This game will also be Senior Day for the Women’s basketball team, meaning it will be the last time Leavitt, forward Zandra Emanuel and guard Dabrasia Baty will take the floor in San Marcos.

Make sure to come out and show the seniors some love next Saturday, or catch all the action on KTSW 89.9.
