LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A late run nearly gave Texas State its second win of the season over Arkansas-Little Rock, the preseason favorite in the Sun Belt Conference.
However, a cold-blooded 3-pointer by Taylor Ford gave the Trojans just enough breathing room down the stretch to hold off the Bobcats en route to a 77-70 win.
Texas State found itself down by as many as 18 points with 12:37 left in the game before senior guard Kaylan Martin sparked a 17-5 run with back-to-back steals. Those takeaways beget four consecutive points and the Bobcats were back in business.
