What to Know

After two games on the road, the Lamar Cardinals are heading back home. They will square off against the Texas State-San Marcos Bobcats at 8:30 p.m. ET Thursday at Montagne Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

Lamar has to be hurting after a devastating 75-50 defeat at the hands of the SMU Mustangs on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Texas State-San Marcos came up short against the Hawaii Warriors on Sunday, falling 72-65.

The Cardinals are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.

The losses put Lamar at 3-4 and Texas State-San Marcos at a reciprocal 4-3. Lamar is 1-2 after losses this year, the Bobcats 2-0.
