Recap: Texas State vs. South Alabama

San Marcos, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - A pair of free throws by Joel Wright in the waning moments of overtime were enough to push the Texas State Bobcats to a 67-66 win against the South Alabama Jaguars in a Sun Belt Conference tilt at Strahan Coliseum.

Wright finished the meeting with 21 points and eight rebounds, although he shot just 7-of-20 from the floor for the Bobcats (8-18, 4-9 Sun Belt) as they snapped a three-game slide. Reid Konnen led all scorers with 26 points as he converted 7-of-10 behind the 3-point line.

The Jaguars (8-18, 2-11) were paced by Augustine Rubit with 22 points, seven boards and four blocks, while Mychal Ammons logged a double-double consisting of 15 points and 13 rebounds, but he also turned the ball over six times before fouling out.

Both teams shot under 37 percent from the field in the first half, but thanks to a 6-of-15 performance beyond the arc in the period, Texas State was able to move out to a 30-27 advantage at the break.

In the second half the hosts made good on 52.4 percent from the floor, but at the same time connected on a woeful 3-of-10 at the charity stripe, opening the door for the Jags to send the meeting into overtime knotted at 56-56 after Barrington Steven converted a 3-pointer with 18 seconds remaining.
