Joel Wright poured in 33 points and pulled down 12 rebounds for Texas State (7-16, 3-8), but none of the other Bobcats joined him in double-figures. Texas State's starting five combined to finish 4-of-20 from the field as it lost for the second time in a row.

Denver scored 15 points off of turnovers and connected on 52.4 percent of its field goal attempts to stay in control for the opening 20 minutes.
