Thursday college basketball features the UL Monroe Warhawks visiting the Texas State Bobcats.

The UL Monroe Warhawks saw a two game winning streak end in an 83-76 loss versus the rival UL Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns on Saturday.

Louisiana Monroe hasn’t been able to string together a significant winning streak because of a struggling defense which has the team stuck in 6thin the Sun Belt.

The balanced Warhawks saw 25 points, five pulls and five helpers from Daishon Smith with Travis Munnings adding 16 points, nine rebounds and four helpers.

UL Monroe saw 12 points and eight boards from JD Williams followed by Michael Ertel with another 12 point effort.

The Texas State Bobcats continue to pile up the wins after upending UALR 67-60 on the road Saturday as a 2.5 point favorite.

Texas State sits atop the Sun Belt because the team has been consistent at both ends of the floor and avoided losing streaks.

Nijal Pearson carried the Bobcats with 23 points and four pulls followed by Eric Terry who tossed in another 12 points.

Tre’Larenz Nottingham gave Texas State another eleven points and six boards while Alex Peacock contributed seven points.

UL Monroe Warhawks are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games overall and UL Monroe Warhawks are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 Thursday games and UL Monroe Warhawks are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 vs. Sun Belt.

Texas State Bobcats are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win and Texas State 

Bobcats are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games and Texas State Bobcats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win.

UL Monroe Warhawks are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Texas State and UL Monroe Warhawks are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

The Warhawks probably should have a few more wins but they lose close contests and that says take the points to me…

Pick:
UL Monroe +6

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
