Aggies Drop Two in San Antonio

—By Laura Nelson on 01/06/2013 San Antonio, Texas—The men's and women's Aggie basketball teams continued Heartland Conference play on the road Saturday, taking on the St. Mary's University Rattlers in San Antonio.

In the first game, the women kept the score close through the first eight minutes of half one, trading buckets with the Rattlers. Despite the Aggies' determination, St. Mary's began to pull ahead and remained at the top, going into the second half with a 23 point lead. In half two, the Rattlers led by as much as 29 points, and even though the Aggies cut that lead to 19 with 4:16 left in the game, the deficit was too big to overcome and the Rattlers won 82-61. Whitley Coca was the leading scorer with 22, Sarah Johnson had 13, and Shayla Mathis had five points plus a remarkable 13 rebounds. The women are now 3-10 overall and 0-2 in Heartland Conference play.

Tavien Rosemond hit a 3-point shot right off and Damar Hill followed that with two to put the Aggies up by two with less than a minute off the scoreboard at the start of the men's game. The Rattlers soon tied it up and then took a five point lead, but the Aggies continued to work and tied the score at 15 all with just over 10 minutes left in the first half. St. Mary's went on to score 33 points in the remaining minutes while holding OPSU to only 12, taking a 48-27 lead into the halftime break. In half two, the Aggies simply couldn't put a stop to the Rattler scoring, and lost 83-63. A trio of Aggies put up 13 thirteen points-Rosemond, T. J. Farrell, and Bill Lee, who also took down five rebounds. St. Mary's Kevin Kotzur, last year's Heartland Conference MVP among a number of other honors, led the scoring with 25 and grabbed 11 rebounds, earning a double double. The men are now 4-10 overall and 0-3 in the conference. Head coach Jerry Olson said, "I was pleased with how hard we played. We missed a lot of open looks, and must learn to hit open shots while we're on the road."

Both teams play the University of Texas of the Permian Basin in Odessa on Jan. 12 with the women's game scheduled for 2 p.m. and the men's game at approximately 4 p.m.
