STAFF REPORT

The Texas State women’s basketball team suffered an 86-83 loss to Texas-San Antonio (UTSA) Sunday afternoon at Strahan Coliseum and now is 2-8.

The Bobcats never had a firm grip on the UTSA game, yet had a chance to force overtime in the end.

UTSA established a 10-point lead with a three-pointer to start the second half. The Bobcats were able to cut that deficit down to four at various times througout the second half, but couldn’t make it closer until 1:31 remained and Ashley Ezeh made to free throws to bring them within 84-81.

With 26 seconds remaining, Jasmine Baugus made a jumper for the Bobcats, bringing them within 84-83. However, UTSA made two free throws after the Bobcats fouled quickly. Facing a three-point deficit with 21 seconds remaining, the Bobcats got a three-point attempt up by Kaitlin Walla with two seconds remaining. But the shot missed and UTSA won.

Walla led all scorers with 17 points. Ezeh and Erin Peoples added 15 and 14, respectively, for the Bobcats.

Texas State will resume action Sunday at Strahan Coliseum (2 p.m.) against the University of St. Thomas.
