Bobcat women still looking for first league win


The Texas State women’s basketball team still is looking for its first win in the Southland Conference after a 70-59 loss Wednesday night at Texas-San Antonio.

The Bobcats fell to 0-6 in the Southland Conference and 4-13 overall, while UTSA improved to 3-1 and 10-8.

The Bobcats were down, 40-29 at halftime, then rallied early in the second half to pull within 43-39 when Kelsey Krupa made a three-pointer less than five minutes into the second half. Later, the Bobcats made five straight free throws and Aimee Hilburn made a jumper, bringing Texas State within 52-50.

But UTSA responded with a 13-2 run, darting to a 65-52 lead and putting the game away.

Again, the Bobcats shot poorly, hitting only nine of 24 field goal attempts (27 percent) in the second half and 19 of 60 (32 percent) for the game.

Victoria Davis led Texas State with 12 points, while Hilburn led the team with eight rebounds. Jeremini Malone led UTSA with 16 points.

The Bobcats will play Texas-Arlington on the road Saturday at 4 p.m.
