AUSTIN — Denae Lofton was tired of trading shots.
The junior guard quelled a late San Marcos (8-20, 0-1 in District 14-6A) rally in the final period and spearheaded an Akins run to hand the Lady Rattlers a 67-49 loss during their district opener Friday night.

Texas State doesn’t plan on listening to preseason projections any time soon.

The Bobcats captured their first regular season victory over UT Arlington since 2011 during Saturday night’s 81-73 win in a match-up featuring the teams predicted to finish first and last in the Sun Belt Conference.

After hearing about UT Arlington’s Erick Neal and Kevin Hervey all week, Texas State’s seniors just wanted to get to Saturday.

Texas State’s game against UT Arlington played out like a broken record.

The Lady Mavericks (10-3, 3-0 Sun Belt) fed junior center Rebekah VanDijk and the Bobcats (6-8, 1-2) had no answer for her presence inside the paint. VanDijk, who averages 16.6 points and 9.1 rebounds per game, put together a 30 point and 14 rebound performance to lead UTA to a 61-39 win over Texas State.

Texas State head coach Zenarae Antoine wasn’t sure if she liked the week break between playing Appalachian State and facing UT-Arlington.

But Antoine thinks the week break came at the right time after falling to App State, 66-64, last Saturday in a contest where the Bobcats committed 17 turnovers and were outscored in the paint 42-28.

Conference play just started and a win Saturday would set things in motion.

Texas State (8-6, 1-1 in the Sun Belt) hosts its biggest challenge this season in in-state rival UT Arlington (12-3, 2-0 in the Sun Belt) Saturday with a chance to shake up preseason expectations. Head coach Danny Kaspar’s team is coming off their first Sun Belt loss Monday night at the hands of Coastal Carolina. That loss becomes a distant memory with an upset over the No. 2 team in College Insider’s mid-major poll.
