When the Texas State Bobcats were projected to finish eighth in the Sun Belt this season, head coach Danny Kaspar couldn’t help but smile. He remembers when the team was picked to finish in last place during the 2016–17 season and shocked everyone when they went 22-14 and reached the conference championship matchup. This team likes to defy the odds, but they need you to come out and support them. The Bobcats have a couple of important home games in December, so grab tickets and watch them play. Groups of 10 or more can get tickets for $5 each, and public tickets are $10 to $15.
Houston Baptist – Dec. 8 at 4 p.m.
Texas State takes on Houston Baptist at home on December 8. Houston Baptist is coming off a rough 2017–18 campaign, where they finished 6-25. The team only picked up two wins in the Southland Conference and is hoping to rebound this year. They’ve had some lopsided losses so far this season. Wisconsin won 96-59, and Arizona took them down by a score of 90-60. Early games show the team struggles both offensively and defensively, so your Bobcats could dribble right by them. Expect the Bobcats to play aggressively and exploit Houston Baptist’s weaknesses.

Howard Payne – Dec. 29 at 4 p.m.
Howard Payne had a much better 2017–18 season than Houston Baptist, finishing up at 11-15 overall and racking up seven conference wins. The team started the season off with a disappointing loss against Austin, dropping the game 101-95. Then, they dropped two more games in a row, proving that there is cause for concern. Still, Howard Payne has shown signs of life on both offense and defense and could end up being a formidable opponent. The Bobcats will need you in the stands for this matchup.
