After a three-game win streak against Georgia Southern, Georgia State and ULM, the Texas State women’s basketball team traveled to the Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana, where the Ragin’ Cajuns ultimately defeated the Bobcats in a tough 70-64 loss on Saturday afternoon.
The Bobcats had a slow start to the game, only putting up 13 and 14 points in the first and second quarters. The Maroon and Gold fought hard in the second half, though, outscoring the Cajuns 37-33, but it was not enough to get the win.
With the conclusion of the regular season, the ‘Cats are now focusing their attention on the Sun Belt Conference postseason tournament. The Bobcats have won five of their last seven games.
Texas State women’s basketball head coach Zenarae Antoine reiterated the team’s “one game at a time” mentality and the importance of keeping that mindset with the Sun Belt tournament around the corner.
“It’s been one game at a time all conference season long, it’s truly been one game at a time,” Antoine said.
The Bobcats (13-16) will seek some revenge against the UT-Arlington Mavericks after dropping their last matchup 49-69 on Feb. 22 and look to upset them in their home arena in Arlington, Texas, in the first game of the Sun Belt Conference championship tournament.
