Bobcats working out sores from loss at A&M


The Texas State women’s basketball team will try to even its record at 5-5 Sunday at noon, when they play at Strahan Coliseum against Concordia.

Meanwhile, the Bobcats are working out the sores from a 94-45 loss at No. 3 Texas A&M last Saturday. The game ended almost at the moment it started. Texas A&M (9-0) scored the first seven points and expanded the lead to 23-2 in the opening minutes.

The game was a classic case of one team shooting well throughout the game and the other shooting badly throughout the game. Texas State made just eight of 30 field goal attempts in the first half and eight of 34 in the second, finishing the game with 25 percent shooting (16 for 64). Meanwhile, A&M made 20 of 40 field goals in the first half and 18 of 38 in the second, ending the game with 49 percent shooting (38 for 78).

Six Aggies finished in double figures, led by Tyra White with 15 points and eight rebounds. La Toya Micheax hit the double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Gabriell Mattox notched her first career double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds for Texas State. Teammate Kim Cessna added 15 points.

Following the game Sunday against Concordia, the Bobcats will take a holiday break to end on Dec. 30, when they meet Texas-Dallas at Strahan Coliseum (5:30 p.m.). The Bobcats will play at Baylor on Jan. 3 for their final non-conference game (7 p.m.) before starting their Southland Conference run on Jan. 10 at Texas-Arlington (4 p.m.).
