STAFF REPORT

The Texas State women’s basketball team exited quickly from the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Tournament with a 73-63 first-round loss to Denver Tuesday in Las Vegas.

Diamond Ford scored 27 points for the Bobcats, making 12 of 24 field goal attempts, but the rest of the team made only 15 of 44 shots (34 percent) and no one else on the Bobcats reached double figures.

Ford’s performance gave her 644 points for the season, the all-time Texas State record. With 1,920 points in her career, the senior leaves Texas State as the school’s second all-time leading scorer.

The Bobcats were within 33-32 at halftime. After Ford’s second-half three pointer moved her ahead of Carlotta Fisbeck (633 points) on the Texas State single season list while tying the game at 44-44, Denver went on an 11-4 run and held the lead for good.

Texas State finished the season at 10-20. Denver, at 14-16, will move on in the tournament.
