The Texas State Men’s Basketball team beat the Arkansas State Red Wolves on Thursday night by a score of 66-62.
The four double digit leading scorers for the Bobcats included Tyrel Morgan with 12 points, followed by the 10 points by Mason Harrell, and 11 points by Nighael Caesar.
“I’m proud of them defensively,” said head coach Terrance Johnson. Defensively, the Bobcats had eight total blocks, five of which came from senior forward Nighael Caesar himself. The Bobcats also had 26 defensive rebounds, out rebounding the Red Wolves.
The Bobcats shot 20-for-25 from the free throw line, at an 80% clip.
“We practice our free throws in honor of Ahmaud Arbery by practicing for 2:23, which signifies when he had died,” Johnson said.
The largest lead of the first half was only five points for the Redwolves. The lead changed a total of 14 times throughout which revealed how close this game was for these two teams.
The Bobcats came out into the game with a decent lead, but that didn’t mean that they had let off the game anytime soon.
The Bobcats had a pretty big crowd for this game, as it was the blackout game for the Bobcats. Everyone could tell that the guys were feeding off the crowd’s energy.
“The Crowd had helped us a lot tonight. It feels good to get a bucket and hear the crowd cheer for you,” said Tyrel Morgan
This win broke the bobcats three game losing streak and brings them to (12-14 overall) and (5-8 Sun Belt). They look to improve their record at home this Saturday against Old Dominion at 4 p.m. where you can listen live on KTSW 89.9!
