Men's College Basketball: Stronger second half starts are key to State's win streak

Texas State is rolling.

Head coach Danny Kaspar has the Bobcats (13-8, 6-3 in the Sun Belt) on a three-game. They’ve held each of their last three opponents to under 60 points a game, something not done against Division I opponents since 2002, the last time Texas State finished above .500.

Texas State is as close as its been to achieving its first winning record in over a decade, but the 63-year-old head coach hasn’t mentioned that to his players.

There isn’t much to talk about in regards to Texas State’s offensive and defensive lines that hasn’t already been said. Getting better in the trenches had to be a priority for 2017’s recruiting class.

The offensive line was a near-disaster until the end of the season—when it showed flashes, but was still well below-standard—and the defensive line was severely undersized.

San Marcos seniors Austin Castillo, Colby Vidrine and Ramsey Tijerina signed to play football in college during National Signing Day on Wednesday.

Castillo is headed to Texas Lutheran, Tijerina will play for Austin College and Vidrine flipped to Midwestern State after previously being committed to Texas A&M-Commerce.

Castillo said it was a relief to end the recruiting process and sign with the Bulldogs.

“Financially it was the best decision for me and being close to home my family can see me play,” Castillo said.
