Tarleton was outscored 40-21 while shooting only .228 from the floor in the second half Saturday afternoon as the TexAnns suffered a 68-49 loss to the Rambelles.
"The reason we shot 26-percent (for the game) is because we played selfish basketball," said head coach Misty Wilson. "Angelo State played very unselfishly and moved the ball around within their offense. We took more shots than they did, they just weren't good shots.
"We didn't change anything drastic (at halftime), I mean the score was 28-28, we just didn't come out with any energy or intensity," she continued."
The game started with a couple of big scoreless runs for each team as Angelo State opened the game with a 7-0 run before Katie Webster went to the free throw line and knocked down a pair to start a 10-0 Tarleton surge to put the TexAnns on top 10-7. The TexAnns would go on to take a 15-13 lead after the opening quarter.
Angelo State answered in the second quarter with a 15-13 advantage of its own to send the game into halftime in a 28-28 tie.
Out of the break, Angelo State started the new half on a 10-0 run to pull away. In the second half alone, the TexAnns were 8-35 from the floor, including 1-10 from beyond the arc, and 4-7 at the free throw line.
Only McKinley Bostad reached double figures in scoring as the junior scored 12 to go along with five rebounds and three assists. Katie Webster boasted a near double-double with eight points and 12 rebounds, which led all players, while Tiara Tatum and Mackenzie Hailey each totaled nine points.
Kylie Collins scored six while Makaila Tyer (3) and Hannah Allen (2) rounded out the Tarleton scoring.
Tarleton will return home for the final four games of the regular season, beginning Tuesday night at 5:30 p.m. against Texas A&M-Commerce.
