Post Game Thread - @ South Alabama
Texas State plays its first conference road game of the year today at 3:05pm vs. the South Alabama Jaguars.

South Alabama is 8-8 overall and 1-2 in conference play so far. They beat Troy at home to begin conference play before going 0-2 on their Georgia road trip last weekend losing to both Georgia State and Georgia Southern. They are 6-3 overall at home at the Mitchell Center this year. The Bobcats are 1-4 in true road games this year.

Senior point guard Ken Williams returns after leading them last year and is the leader again this year averaging 12.1 PPG to go along with 47 assists to 26 turnovers this year. Ojai Black will be tasked with defending Ken Williams. Ojai did well against Williams last year. 6-7 senior forward Georgi Boyanov from Bulgaria also returns and is averaging 11.6 PPG despite only starting 5 games this year. Their 3rd leading scorer also usually comes off the bench as 6-6 senior forward Nick Stover is averaging 10.9 PPG. 6-4 Junior Guard Shaq Calhoun also returns and is averaging 10.2 PPG and the only newcomer I'm listing as a player to watch is 6-7 freshman forward Josh Ajayi from Nigeria (not sure if he's related to Jay). He is averaging 10.1 PPG. Ajayi has come on lately as one of the better players for USA. He led the team in scoring and rebounding last week in their two games in Georgia (18 PPG and 10 RPG).

The Bobcats have fared well against USA since joining the Sun Belt, going 5-1 against them overall over the past 3 seasons. This includes season sweeps both last year and two years ago. South Alabama hasn't beaten the Bobcats since since the 2013-2014 season.

Game is not televised anywhere I can see though USA will have a video broadcast at JagNationTV.com. I'm not sure if that is a free video or not. Radio stations airing the game are 1300 the zone in Austin, 103.1 in Austin, and KTSW in San Marcos.

South Alabama are 4.5 point favorites according to Vegas. TXST will stay in Alabama after today's game and get ready to head to Troy to play the Trojans Monday night.

Starters for TXST:
1 - Black
2 - Conley
3 - Pearson
4 - Gilder-Tilbury
5 - King

4th straight start for King. Not sure if McCrea will be active for today's game or not. He has missed the last 3 with a bruised rib.

McCrea did not make the trip to Alabama.

Starwood will be backing up King at the 5.
