Many fans of the Texas State men’s basketball team are noticing an emergence of Brent Benson as a true scoring threat on the team. Last season, Benson did average 12 points per game, but in limited action.
Benson, according to head coach Doug Davalos, is learning to be an “adequate defender,” thus earning more playing time in his system. The second-year guard has worked a lot on his help-side defense, trying to draw charges and the like.
Davalos mentioned his team is never going to be a “great defensively,” but he’ll take “good” any day. He said if they can be “great offensively and good defensively,” they have a shot at “doing some big things.”
The Bobcats return home tonight against Southwest Assemblies of God.
