Women's basketball drops second consecutive game

The Texas State women’s basketball team took their second loss of the season against Houston Baptist, 61-56.

Texas State gained a 10 point lead during the middle of the first half after a layup by Meghan Braeuer, senior guard. Houston Baptist regained the lead with a 10-2 run in the last three minutes.

Braeuer missed 11 of 15 shots, following her career-high 24 point performance against Texas Tech.

Associate Head Coach Sue Serafini is stressing the importance of preparation for the Texas State women’s basketball team.

Texas State will need to limit second-chance opportunities and execute offensively against winless Houston Baptist in order to bounce back from an overtime loss to Texas Tech.

The Bobcats showed they are capable of scoring points from any position on the floor in the 77-81 loss to the Red Raiders. The starting five for the Bobcats scored double figures, and Meghan Braeuer, senior guard, contributed a career-high 24 points.

Texas State lost its double-digit lead in the second half because of a four-minute stretch when the team missed shot opportunities, Serafini said.  

Women's basketball falls in overtime to Texas Tech


The Texas State women’s basketball team was defeated by 45 points in its previous meeting against the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

The margin was closer this time around, but the outcome remained the same. Texas State lost in overtime 81-77, dropping to 1-1 this season.

“We came out with the confidence that we really belong playing this team,” Associate Coach Sue Serafini said. “They took the floor and weren’t nervous or scared and just played basketball. I’m so very proud of the energy effort and attention to detail they put out tonight.”

Prior to overtime, the lead changed five times in the final six minutes, before Texas Tech drew a blocking foul with five seconds remaining. Junior guard Rayven Brooks made one of two free throws sending the game to overtime.

Women's basketball notches win in season opener

Maintaining a 20 point lead for most of the second half, the Texas State women’s basketball team had little trouble securing its sixth consecutive season opening victory against Texas A&M International.

The Bobcats created 15 turnovers in its 83-65 win over the Dustdevils.

“We had contribution from our entire program today,” Associate Head Coach Sue Serafini said. “The starters and the returners got on the floor early on the beginning of the game and really took care of business. They ran tempo, rebounded the basketball. They found each other but for our program it was a complete win for everyone today.”

Coach Zenarae Antoine’s recruiting class are now juniors and her system of play is almost fully implemented.

The Texas State women’s basketball team will fight for its sixth consecutive season opening victory against Texas A&M International, Nov. 15. 

Although the Bobcats have won the past five opening games, Associate Head Coach Sue Serafini says that will not guarantee a win for this game.

Women's basketball shootaround: Texas State vs. Texas A&M International


Non-conference struggles

Last season both teams struggled during non-conference games as Texas A&M International went 4-4 and Texas State finished 4-10. Conference is one of the most important parts of any team’s season. However, non-conference games set the tone for conference play. Kicking off the season strong can help carry the momentum into the Sun Belt Conference slate.

Women's basketball aiming to replace star players as season approaches


Since her arrival in 2011, Coach Zenarae Antoine has turned the struggling women’s basketball program into a contender in the Sun Belt. After going 16-16 last season, the Bobcats will need to pick up the tempo on both sides of the court to get through this year’s challenging season.


This season the Bobcats will need to fill the spots left by two graduated players in Ashley Ezeh, center, and Kaylan Martin, guard. Ezeh led the team with 384 points and 24 blocks last season. Martin led with 105 assists.

Nine players from the previous season will return, including Erin Peoples, junior guard, and Ayriel Anderson, junior guard.

The Texas State women’s basketball team finished with a 16-16 overall record and a 12-6 record in the Sun Belt Conference.

The Bobcats were eliminated in the semifinals of the Sun Belt postseason tournament by the Arkansas State Red Wolves, who beat them three times by an average margin of 12 points this season.

Texas State entered the tournament with nine wins in its last 12 games, including an 11-point road victory against Western Kentucky, the eventual Sun Belt champion. The team was in contention for the second seed in the playoffs up until the final week. As the fourth seed, and with some momentum heading into the postseason, Texas State’s chances to win the tournament were reasonably high.

The Texas State women’s basketball team shot 34.4 percent from the field on the road Thursday night, ending the team’s season in a 59-51 loss to Stephen F. Austin.

The Bobcats’ season ended with an overall record of 16-16, despite the team’s postseason appearance.

Erin Peoples, sophomore forward, led the Bobcats with 21 points and nine rebounds. Peoples’ 21 points was one shy of her season-high 22 on Jan. 25 against Troy.

SFA had a 13-4 run in the second half, taking a 40-31 lead, and did not look back. The Bobcats shot 1-7 from the field during the Ladyjacks’ 13-4 run.

Women's basketball defeats Jaguars in Alabama

The Texas State women’s basketball team erased a 10-point deficit in the second half Wednesday to defeat the South Alabama Jaguars 64-60.

The Bobcats swept the season-series against South Alabama, winning both matchups by single-digits. The team swept three conference opponents this season.

Texas State improved to 14-14 overall and 11-6 in the conference. They won 11 conference games for the third time since 2007.

South Alabama was eliminated from postseason contention after losing its eighth consecutive game.

“It’s never easy going up against a team that has their back against the wall,” said Coach Zenarae Antoine. “You never truly know someone’s heart, and I give a lot of credit to Coach (Terry) Fowler for what he’s doing with this program.”
