STAFF REPORT

The Texas State women’s basketball team will go on the road this week attempting to recover from a five-game losing streak.

The Bobcats lost their first two home games in their new home conference last week, 73-70 to Denver on Jan. 3 and 61-58 to New Mexico State on Jan. 5. The Bobcats now are 6-8 overall and 0-4 in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC).

In each case, the Bobcats had the final shot at a tie in the waning seconds, and missed. Against Denver, Kaylan Martin took the final shot. Against New Mexico State, it was Diamond Ford.

Ford led the Bobcats with 26 points against Denver. New Mexico State held the Ford, the Bobcats’ top scorer, to six points, as she made only three of 16 shots. It was a terrible shooting night, generally, for the Bobcats, who made only 29.9 percent of their field goal attempts (20 of 67). Ashley Ezeh led the Bobcats against New Mexico State with 15 points and nine rebounds.

Ford leads the Bobcats with 21.8 points per game. Ezeh leads the Bobcats at 10.5 rebounds per game while also chipping in an average of 17.1 points.

The Bobcats will play Thursday at Louisiana Tech (7 p.m.) and Saturday at Texas-Arlington (6 p.m.). Louisiana Tech is 2-1 in the league and 6-7 overall, while UTA is 1-2 and 3-10.
