(January 9, 2016) — No. 9 Tarleton State is coming off arguably its most complete performance of the season in a 85-67 thrashing of No. 4 Angelo State, in which the Texans led by as many as 25 before calling off the dogs.

The Texans (12-2, 2-0) take aim at their fourth straight win at A&M-Kingsville (8-5, 0-1) at 8 tonight, and if they are successful it could very well set up their fifth all top 10 showdown the last two seasons when they visit No. 6 Midwestern State next Wednesday.
