Joining the Bobcats in the tournament will be North Texas, Purdue and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
Texas State is 2-12 so far this season and will try to snap a six-game losing streak into today’s 5 p.m. tournament opener against North Texas. The Mean Green beat Texas State 1-0 in last weekend’s Bobcat Texas Shootout.
