I doubt there's anyone on this site that's watched as much TXST basketball the past few years as I have. Pearson is legit. Kaspar's teams play really tough defense, too. The loss at Air Force really hurt, though. Similar to the loss at Drake early last season before they went on to have a great non-conference run capped with a 3-point loss at Arkansas.

I wouldn't sleep on TXST. I don't think they have the talent or depth to win, but they're not Prarie View or Central Arkansas. Also, Baylor fouling in this game might not be a bad thing. Bobcats were awful from the stripe last year.

Man, we're gonna have to seriously reevaluate the expectations on this team. Ashley with the 30 win O/U is looking like a massive homer.

30-29. Gross.

Yep. I still think 23/24 is reasonable.

Hopefully team will hit stride and start to gel in this game and get hot through the season as well.

Bobcats shooting almost 47% from the floor, Bears only 36%. Bears outrebounded by 1

Tie game at 30 at the half

Nine turnovers. A lot of lazy passing, holding the ball low and jumping without a plan in traffic. Ug-ly.

We suck real bad tonight.

Bears only 4-14 or 28% from 3 in the 1st half. That won't cut it.

4-14 from 3. Team is too athletic to depend on that shot. They move the ball well. Just need better shot selections. Defense is solid.

Oh, and handle the ball better.

So many red flags. Need a dominant last 20 but I'm not sure.

In honor of our armed forces, in particular the USMC, the bears have totally failed to adapt, improvise, and overcome. WTH???
Retreat Hell! We just got here! The 2/5
