Bobcats move a game over 500 for the first time this season after knocking off the Texas A&M Islanders with a score of 66 to 53. The Cats played their best game of season so far holding the Islanders to only 16 first half points.It was a one man show all night for the Cats with Alex Peacock getting his first start of the season, and he made the most of it. Coming off an impressive California road trip he picked up where he left off getting 21 points 9 rebounds and 9 assists. The rest of the squad played a good supporting cast for Peacock. Nijal Pearson had an off night but still managed to get eight points and eight rebounds to help out his team. Immanuel King helped out on the glass getting eight rebounds as well as scoring seven points. Eric Terry helped out defensively with two blocks and finished with nine points. Tyler Blount also hit some timely 3’s to help out the Cats, and tallied six points of his own. The Bobcats did struggle with 22 turnovers, and that resulted in 16 points for A&M Corpus Christi. Looking at the Islanders they just seemed to struggle all night getting out rebounded by Texas State 40 to 25. Joe Kilgore did manage to get hot for a stretch in the second half ending the game with 14 points. That was really the lone bright spot for the Islanders.
Texas State now has a two game winning streak and moves to 4-3 on the season. Bobcats head to Houston to take on HBU. That game is Saturday and the tip will be at 7 with a 6:45 pregame. Right here on KTSW 89.9!
