Men’s basketball

After a successful 2021-2022 season in which the Texas State men’s basketball team went 21-8 and made an appearance in the NIT Tournament expectations were high for the 2022-2023 team that was selected to finish second in the Sun Belt Conference.

The Bobcats finished with a 16-19 overall record and 6-12 in the Sun Belt.

In the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, the Bobcats caught fire winning three straight games; two against higher-seed’s to reach the quarterfinal round. Despite the team’s best efforts, Texas State lost 64-58 to eventual conference champions Louisiana-Lafayette University ending its underwhelming season.

Fifth-year guard Mason Harrell was named to the All-Sun Belt Third Team for the third consecutive year and left the program as the sixth all-time leading scorer and second in both games played and started.
