College Basketball: Texas State/UTSA

  • Texas-San Antonio leads Texas State by five at halftime, 38-33.
  • Got a little bit chippy in the first half as four technical fouls were dished out. UTSA’s Larry Wilkins and Texas State’s Tony Bishop got tangled up in the paint and then Doug Davalos and Brooks Robinson got into it a little bit.
  • Not sure why the Bobcats decided to sit in a 1-3-1 zone while the Roadrunners lit them up in the first half from beyond the arc. UTSA knocked down 6 of its 12 3-pointers in the first 20 minutes.
  • Texas State won at home again, thanks to a pair of free throws by Ryan White with 0.3 seconds left in the game. The final score was 82-80.

College Basketball: If the SLC Tournament began today…

  • Texas State’s men would be the No. 2 seed at 9-4 even though it has the same record as McNeese State. The Cowboys own a tiebreaker against the Bobcats from a win earlier in the season.
  • Texas State’s women wouldn’t be in the tournament as Suzanne Fox’s team is currently sits in ninth. The Bobcats fell to Southeastern Louisiana Wednesday night and the Lions improved to 4-9, earning a tiebreaker against Texas State.

College Basketball: Davalos sounds off

Talked with Texas State head coach Doug Davalos this afternoon about his team’s recent success and senior forward Tony Bishop. Eventually the topic about Bishop NOT being named Southland Conference Player of the Week came up and this is what Davalos had to say…

“The guy they gave it to (Devon Baker) had a good week, but it was all offensive,” Davalos said. “He’s the worst defensive player in the conference but they gave it to that guy, because he scored.”

Baker averaged 24 points per game last week to lead Northwestern State to a pair of wins.

Bishop put up 21 points and grabbed seven rebounds Wednesday night against Central Arkansas, so another big performance Saturday afternoon against Texas-Arlington might put him in line for the award.

College Basketball: A Graphical Representation

StatSheet.com does a great job of putting together pages for each team in Division I with graphical representations of who leads said team in each category. As you can tell for the Bobcats, it’s pretty close to being equal across the board in several categories.
