Same story for the UT Arlington women's basketball team after another close loss, 54-49, to Texas State yesterday. I won't spend any time repeating myself, read past posts if you want to hear me talk about how the team doesn't have depth or have come so close to having more than a handful of wins or any other cliche.
As it stands now, UTA is 3-20 on the year and 2-10 in the Sun Belt Conference. So what I will do today is list all the second half leads UTA has held and the point in which the opponent took the lead for good (I will note if that took place in regulation or OT).
11-8 at Houston Baptist, 15:07
11-14 Incarnate Word, 2:06
11-24 Virginia Commonwealth, 4:56 in OT
11-27 Abilene Christian, 14:54
12-4 North Texas, 10:15
12-18 at Texas-Pan American, 13:16
1-2 Arkansas State, 2:52
1-11 at Louisiana-Lafayette, 1:30
1-25 South Alabama, 0:09 in OT
2-12 at Louisiana-Monroe, 2:10
2-15 Texas State, 1:32
That's 11 games where they were in it. A couple of other games finished within a couple of possessions but they never had a second half lead. In the end, a loss is a loss. Yet, the silver lining is that they may be the best 3-20 team in the country.
