Playing what head coach Doug Davalos called its “best complete game” this season, the Texas State men’s basketball team trounced San Jose State on the road, 90-67, Saturday.

It was the final game of the regular season for the Bobcats, who finished that portion 5-13 in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) and 10-21 overall. The Bobcats will open the WAC Tournament tonight (8 p.m.) against last-place Seattle (3-15 and 8-21).

“When you play your last regular season game and you feel like it’s your best complete game I think that’s a good time to do it,” Davalos said. “We didn’t look bad. We didn’t talk about any disappointments we’ve had. We had a goal, and the seven seed is pretty important. It’s our first year in the WAC and we were picked last, but we finished seventh out of 10.”

The Bobcats made 18 of 24 field goal attempts (75 percent) in the first half at San Jose State and led 52-40 at intermission. They finished the game with 64.7 percent field goal shooting (33 of 51), their best rate of the season.

Joel Wright led the Bobcats with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Matt Staff added 15 points for the Bobcats.
