McNeese Team Preview

The McNeese Cowboys come into this one looking to build on back-to-back wins after a 74-67 win over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi last time out. Shahada Wells leads the Cowboys in scoring and assists with 17.5 PPG and 4.7 APG with 4.8 RPG as well while Christian Shumate has 12.2 PPG with a team-high 9.5 RPG to lead the Cowboys on the glass this season.

McNeese vs. Houston Christian Prediction

I’m leaning towards Houston Christian here. McNeese is obviously the better team and they’ve been the best team in the conference up to this point. However, Houston Christian’s had a tendency all year long, of hanging around the better teams that they’ve gone up against and I think this game could be no different. I think this is just a case of too many points so I’ll take the truckload of points with Houston Christian here.
