Women's basketball concludes non-conference play with loss

The Texas State women's basketball team ceded control of the game midway through the second half.

What once was a three-point deficit ballooned to 17 points in a span of seven minutes, with Stetson converting on six layups in this stretch. 

Coach Zenarae Antoine called it the "snow ball effect" -- the team, one possession at a time, gradually fell more and more behind before it was too late. 

"We were getting close," Antoine said. "You’re working hard and the ball just bounces their way. Then we hung our heads and then they ran the ball down floor and scored transition layups."

Bobcats defeat Bethune-Cookman without leading scorer

Despite the absence of leading scorer Erin Peoples, junior guard, who missed the game with a ankle injury, the Texas State women's basketball team pulled out a 51-40 victory against Bethune-Cookman University.

The Bobcats were led by the duo of Meghan Braeuer, senior guard, with 15 points and Kileah Mays, junior center, who recorded her second double-double of her career with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Braeuer converted five 3-pointers in the game, adding to her conference high 32 3-pointers.

"Meghans shooting ability opens up the floor for everyone, especially for Kileah and Jaqueline down low with one on ones," Coach Zenarae Antoine said. "It forces the opposing team to not give help defense when the ball is down in the low post."

Women's basketball edges past Texas A&M Commerce at home

Strahan Coliseum fell silent when Erin Peoples, senior guard, went down with an ankle injury Sunday against Texas A&M Commerce.

Peoples was leading the Bobcats with 18 points in a close game when she was assisted by trainers to the locker room.

"I haven’t actually had a chance to talk to Darcy Downer, our athletic trainer," Coach Zenarae Antoine said. "My assumption is that she’ll still be okay, but she’s still going to travel with us."

Despite her absence, Texas State held on to the lead to defeat the Lions, 74-69.

Meghan Braeuer, senior guard, played a key role in maintaining the lead by finishing the game with a team-high 22 points on 11 field goal attempts.

Women's basketball defeats I-35 rival on road


It has been seven years since the Texas State women's basketball has defeated the UTSA Roadrunners in San Antonio. 

Ayriel Anderson, junior guard, made sure the Bobcats ended the streak with her last two free throws sealing the 57-53 win.

Anderson scored all 12 of her points in the second half to give the Bobcats a win. Anderson's 3-pointer put Texas State ahead by one point with 44 seconds left in the fourth quarter. 

"The biggest thing that kept my head up was my teammates and my coach," Anderson said. "When I shot the 3 pointer on the wing I shot it with confidence like I had not missed a shot all game."

Women's basketball defeated by nationally ranked Oklahoma State

It was a tale of two halves for the Texas State women's basketball team against the 19th ranked Oklahoma State Cowgirls.

The Bobcats cut the deficit to 10 points after Meghan Braeuer, senior guard, converted a 3-pointer with 11:28 remaining in the second half.

The Cowgirls went on a 13-0 run to extend the lead back to 23 points. They never looked back.

Oklahoma State handed Texas State a 64-37 loss, dropping the Bobcats to 2-3 this year. 

Erin Peoples, junior guard, led the Bobcats with 14 points, all of which were scored in the second half. Peoples added seven rebounds in 33 minutes.

Women's basketball defeats Lamar at home

Coach Zenarae Antoine could only watch as the Texas State women's basketball teams' 22 point lead was shaved to 10 points.

“I wasn’t ever worried," Antoine said. "I always had a calm about me. But yes, I did make substitutions because I wanted to make sure we were able to finish out the game.”

Texas State held on to the lead to defeat the Lamar Cardinals, 79-72. The win snapped the Bobcats' two-game losing streak. 

Erin Peoples, junior guard, played a key role in building the double-digit lead by finishing the game with a team-high 21 points on 13 field goal attempts.

“I don’t think I played any harder tonight,” Peoples said. “I just feel like I executed better."

The team is back on the right track. Texas State dropped two consecutive games by a combined nine points. The win elevates the team to the .500 mark prior to a road stretch against Oklahoma State and UTSA. Coach Zenarae Antoine said the team has been "battle tested" prior to a road-heavy slate, in which Texas State has one home game compared to five road games. 


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.

Women's basketball looking for win against Houston Baptist


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.
