What to Know
The Texas State-San Marcos Bobcats will take on the Dixie State Trailblazers at 2 p.m. ET on Friday at Matadome. Dixie State should still be riding high after a win, while the Bobcats will be looking to right the ship.
Texas State-San Marcos received a tough blow on Sunday as they fell 79-60 to the Vanderbilt Commodores. Texas State-San Marcos’ defeat came about despite a quality game from guard Mason Harrell, who had 16 points.
Meanwhile, Dixie State bagged an 83-76 victory over the Southern Utah Thunderbirds last Friday.
Texas State-San Marcos is now 1-2 while Dixie State sits at 1-1. Two last-season defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Bobcats have allowed their opponents to shoot 47.70% from the floor on average, which is the 32nd highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The Trailblazers experienced some struggles of their own as they are 349th worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 76.3 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
