What to Know
The McNeese State Cowboys’ homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Southeastern Louisiana Lions at 8:30 p.m. ET Feb. 3 at The Legacy Center. Southeastern Louisiana should still be feeling good after a win, while the Cowboys will be looking to get back in the win column.
McNeese State was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Sunday as they fell 84-78 to the New Orleans Privateers.
Meanwhile, Southeastern Louisiana beat the Incarnate Word Cardinals 78-68 on Saturday.
Barring any buzzer beaters, McNeese State is expected to win a tight contest on Thursday. Their home court has been no bettor’s paradise, though, as they’ve failed to beat the spread in three of their seven home games.
McNeese State is now 8-14 while the Lions sit at 11-11. A couple defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Cowboys are 52nd worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 73.6 on average. Southeastern Louisiana has experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 46.60% from the floor on average, which is the 12th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
