Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.

Matchup History

Marshall won the lone all-time meeting between these two teams, 81-73, back on January 19th, 2023.


Texas State is 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS win and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 9-1 in their last 10 games overall. Marshall is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a SU loss and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall.


I’m backing the Herd here. Marshall’s just the better team top to bottom and Texas State benefitted from one of the worst shooting performances I’ve ever seen from a basketball team in a conference tournament in Old Dominion. I think this is going to be a bit of a reality check for the Bobcats, so give me Marshall here.
