BOONE, N.C. — Texas State missed out on its first chance for a sweep.

But the Bobcats didn’t allow history to repeat itself this time around.

Behind a solo home run by Derek Scheible in the eighth inning — the first of his college career — Texas State held off Appalachian State for a 6-5 victory on Sunday afternoon in Boone, North Carolina.

It took some good fortune to make it happen, but you won’t hear Texas State complaining.

NEW ORLEANS — The first 25 minutes of Friday's tilt against UL Lafayette went according to plan for Texas State.

While it wasn't always appealing to watch, the Bobcats frustrated the high-powered Ragin' Cajuns and did enough on the offensive end to take control of the game. And once UL Lafayette junior forward Shawn Long was relegated to the bench due to foul trouble with 13 minutes to go, Texas State had to be thinking its chances at another upset were favorable.

NEW ORLEANS — By the time Texas State head coach Zenarae Antoine gathered her team at the first media timeout, UALR had its opponent on the ropes.

While the Bobcats strung together a few baskets in the first half to briefly stall the Trojans' momentum, the damage was already done. UALR never took its foot of the gas en route to a 87-44 victory over Texas State during Friday's semifinals of the Sun Belt Tournament.
