The Bobcat Basketball Band (B3) is a group of 100+ spirited students who perform at all Men's and Women's home games as well as the Sun Belt Conference Tournament.

  • Games that fall during the FALL SEMESTER are covered by members of the Bobcat Marching Band.
     
  • Games that fall during the SEMESTER BREAK are cover by Texas State musicians, and interested players can sign up here.  These players are financially compensated for their services.
     
  • Games that fall during the SPRING SEMESTER are covered by the Bobcat Basketball Band, an auditioned group that receives academic credit. Auditions are held in early November. A limited number of scholarships are available.
