Edward Jones MAKING SENSE OF INVESTING + years, FROM STAFF REPORTS A desperation three-pointer by Stephen E Austin with time winding down in overtime sunk Texas State on the road 73-70 in a thriller Saturday in Nacogdoches.

SFKs Darius Gardner tossed up a long range three-pointer that connected with one sec- ond left in overtime to give the Bobcats their first taste of de- feat in nearly a month. Texas State had reeled off five wins in a row before the loss. In regulation, Ryan White, who finished with 19 points and nine assists for the Bob- cats, stepped tothe line with 32 seconds left and calmly sank two free throws to give Texas State a 59-58 lead, but SFXS ]ereal Scott, who led the Lumberjacks with 30 points, hit one of two free throws with seven seconds remaining to send it into overtime. The teams went back and fourth in the extra period until Scott's heroic shot sealed the win for SFA. Tony Bishop led Texas State with 23 points and 13 assists. The Bobcats will host rival Texas-San Antonio Saturday at Strahan Coliseum. Texas State lost 88-84 on the road against OTSA in ]anuary.

According to rivals. com, Boone, who will be one of the top prospects in the state next season, is consider- ing Arkansas, TCU, Texas A&M and Texas Tech. Feldt said his youngest son ]ake, who is cur- rently in the eighth grade, will enroll at Hays High this com- ing fall. His oldest son Cam is a freshman offensive lineman at the University of Arkansas. Feldt impressed many of the Rebel boosters, which filled the Bales Gym trophy room to have a chance to meet the new coach. "I think things are looking great," said Robert Studdard. "I'm really looking forward to an exciting season." Fellow Hays parent Terrence Mayberry agreed. "I'm excited like everybody else," Mayberry said. "I think a lot of good things are going to happen with Coach Feldt on board." When Feldt met with his future players he talked about his expectations for them and how it was important to work as a team and not have disci- plane issues on or off the field. He also talked about some of the offensive and defensive schemes the Rebels will be running next year. At Pilot Point, Feldt's mul- tiple shotgun-spread offense racked up a school record 604 points and 6,547 yards total offense during their undefeat- ed championship run in 2009. "We were excited to hear what he had to say," said Hays High quarterback Caleb Kimbro. "We're ready to start working for him. I think the team will make the transi- tion to a new coach just fine because winning is our main goal and no matter how long it takes we'll figure things out."

"That was a beautiful goal," said head coach Cole Reyn, olds, who saw his team im- prove to 6-1 in District 49-4A play. "If every one of our scores this season were made on plays like that we'd have a record like the boys do. That was a great example of teamwork." Lena New added another goal for Hays in the first half, knocking the ball in as several players and the Giddings goal- keeper got bunched near the net. "It was a good win," Reyn- olds said.
