The Arkansas State Red Wolves (15-11, 7-8 CONF) and the Texas State Bobcats (16-10, 9-6 CONF) will meet on Saturday, February 15th for a Sun Belt Conference matchup at Strahan Coliseum in San Marcos, TX. The game will be played at 3:00 PM eastern time. 

Arkansas State has been slumping very badly recently, as the Red Wolves are currently on a four-game losing streak with all four losses being conference losses. After a 7-4 Sun Belt start, Arkansas State has self-destructed, but their season is not over yet. Texas State has actually played good basketball as of late, winning four of their last five games overall. In their most recent game, Texas State defeated Arkansas Little Rock at home 74-66.

In the first meeting between these teams, it was a close 70-67 win for Texas State on the road.

I think the Red Wolves will keep this game close as well, enough to get the cover.
