Strahan Coliseum is a 7,200-seat multi-purpose arena in San Marcos, Texas. It is a $8.8 million facility built in 1982 and is home to the Texas State University Bobcats men's basketball team, women's basketball team and women's volleyball team.

On September 15, 2008, the Houston Comets and the Sacramento Monarchs of the WNBA came to play in the Coliseum due to Hurricane Ike cancelling the final home game of the regular season for the Houston Comets. The Comets defeated Sacramento 90-81. This would end up being the last game the Comets ever played; they folded after the season ended.
