The Texas State women’s basketball team took an early lead Saturday at Texas Christian, but the Bobcats couldn’t stay on top and lost, 63-50.

The loss dropped the Bobcats to 1-2 with their next game coming Saturday at Strahan Coliseum against Hampton (1 p.m.).

Kaylan Martin led the Bobcats with 13 points, while Kileah Mays recorded her first double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

The Bobcats scored the first six points with back-to-back threes by senior Martin and junior Jacqueline Jeffcoat. They built their lead to 18-11 before TCU notched 11 straight points for a 22-18 lead.

After the Bobcats built up a seven-point lead in the middle of the first half, TCU started hitting shots that they were missing early, going on a 4-0 run that forced a Bobcat timeout. That run continued to extend to 11 points as the Horned Frogs took their first lead of the game. At 22-18 in favor of TCU, Martin hit her second three of the game with 5:42 left in the half to snap the TCU streak, bringing the game to 22-21 TCU.

TCU held a 33-27 lead at halftime, then built the lead steadily, to as much as 14 points in the second half.

Zahna Medley scored 21 for TCU, leading all scorers.

The Horned Frogs outrebounded Texas State, 52-44.
