Texas State Basketball players say they are ‘disappointed’ with UConn women’s team
Two Texas State basketball players have weighed in on the UConn men’s team’s disappointing loss to Missouri State on Monday night.
“We’re disappointed,” Texas State guard Jamari Staples said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
“We’ve got a lot of guys that want to win, and we want to give our guys a chance.
Texas State guard Jahna Hargrove added, “We know that’s not the best way to win and we’re going to try to make sure we get out there and win the games.”
The Longhorns (9-6, 6-3 Big 12) won by a point in the final minute of regulation, but the Mizzou offense was able to tie it up with 3:36 remaining in the third quarter.
Texas State won the ensuing two games in overtime.
The Longhorns had five players score in double figures, and six of the team’s 15 players scored in double digits.
Texas was 1 of 10 from 3-point range.
Hargroves was the lone Texas State player to make his first start of the season.
The 6-foot-8 guard led the team with 17 points, eight rebounds, and five assists.
