Beaumont and Shreveport would be the best choices if one was trying to group the team geographically. El Paso is pretty easy to get to by air and has a couple of potential venues that might be priced right -- though there is always the shadow of UTEP to deal with.
Corpus Christi?
That would be ideal -- more specifically up I-37 a bit in Robstown, which has a couple of venues that could work well and whose operators seem eager to fill dates.
How 'bout a bit of a novel idea: Brownsville. Set up a real bloodbath rivalry.
I'd personally love that, but I don't think Brownsville has a proper venue, though I could be wrong since they have built all kinds of crap since I lived there. UT Brownsville currently has no basketball program -- I would have to check if a new gym or similar space is in their master expansion plan.
