The Texas State men’s basketball team fell to 0–4 for the season Wednesday night, losing to SMU 70–49.
Texas State recorded four points in the paint at the half, allowing the Mustangs to score 18 points near the rim. This marks the first time this season the Bobcats’ score was doubled by half time. SMU posted 41 points, limiting Texas State to 20. SMU guard Nick Russell led the first half charge with 12 points and two assists.
“I thought our team lost hope during the first half,” said Coach Danny Kaspar. “The second half we played with a little more energy. They have to do this without a tongue lashing from me at halftime. Our players have to believe in themselves.”
