The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks and the Texas State Bobcats meet in college basketball action from Strahan Coliseum on Thursday. 

Louisiana-Monroe enters this one at 6-13 so far. The Warhawks have lost their last six games, dropping to Coastal Carolina, GA Southern, Georgia State, Texas State, TX-Arlington and Louisiana. 

In the loss to the Cajuns, LA-Monroe’s top scorer was Tyree White with 15 points, 13 rebounds and two assists. Michael Ertel added 13 points and four rebounds there, and Jalen Hodge had 12 points.

Over on the Texas State side, they’re 12-9 this year. After winning four straight over Coastal Carolina, App State, LA-Monroe and Louisiana, the Bobcats lost their last game to TX-Arlington. 

In the loss to the Mavericks, Texas State’s Nijal Pearson led the way on 26 points, four rebounds and two assists. Isiah Small doubled up there with 11 points and 12 rebounds with one assist as well. 

The Bobcats are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games and 1-5 ATS in their last six after a straight-up loss. Texas State is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 overall and the over is 7-2 in their last nine overall. 

Meanwhile, the Warhawks are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four Thursday games and 0-4-1 ATS in their last five road games. LA-Monroe is 1-4-1 ATS in their last six overall and the over is 5-2 in their last seven Thursday games. 

Louisiana-Monroe isn’t a great scoring team, and they’ve shown that over their last several games. The Warhawks haven’t hit 70 points in a stretch of seven outings, and they’ve won only one of those games. 

Texas State hasn’t exactly been lighting up the scoreboard lately either, but they’ve been holding it down on defense and playing well overall. I’m going to stick with the Bobcats here.
