Drafts, preparation begin for Maroon-Gold game


The third Maroon-Gold Spring Game under Coach Dennis Francione will kick off at 6 p.m. on April 6 at Bobcat Stadium, but for the players the game began on Wednesday.

Captains were chosen, and the Bobcats held a draft to make up the Maroon and Gold teams Wednesday afternoon with strategy and winning already on the minds of the players prior to setting foot on the field.

“You know, I’ve done this so many times that I’m almost surprised every year,” Franchione said. “I mean sometimes you think they’re going to take this quarterback surely, and they don’t. You can kind of tell what they think of their teammates.”

Men's basketball plans to 'get hot' to compete against Aggies, Spartans


The Texas State basketball team will close out the regular season campaign on the road when they take on San Jose State University and Utah State University this weekend.

Utah State has struggled since losing three of its top five most productive players on the offensive end to injury. On Jan. 17 they suffered more than just a loss to New Mexico State—they lost the WAC Preseason Player of the Year, junior guard Preston Medlin to a broken wrist.

Medlin was averaging 20 points and the Aggies started the WAC schedule 5-0 before the guard went down with the injury. The Aggies are 4-6 in the WAC since Medlin went down in the second half of the New Mexico State game.
