McNeese comes into this matchup with one of the best records in the country and they went 17-1 in conference play. The Cowboys are great on both ends of the court and they are only allowing 61.2 points against per game this year. Lamar has won four games in a row and they were 12-6 in conference play this season. The Cardinals are pretty good on offense, but their defense is allowing over 73 points against per game this year. McNeese won the first two meetings this season by scores of 88-69 and 58-56, and I like them to win easily here.
