SFA (18-5; 7-3) vs. McNeese State (8-12; 5-5)

WHEN: Feb. 8 (THU) 6:30 P.M.
WHERE: Lake Charles, Louisiana
TV: SLC Streaming

The Cowboys are 5-2 at home, but have lost their last two (Sam Houston & New Orleans) in Lake Charles. McNeese has lost 5 of their last 8 overall but then again their losses have been by small margins.

@Lamar 80-86
@Nicholls 80-85
New Orleans 75-82 OT
@Abilene 74-79

so they are much better than their record would indicate.

SR:2
JR:5
SO:3
FR:4

Also look for McNeese to be pretty good next season as they are young.

Season-defining game.

How do you bounce back from the worst conference loss in 16 years...on the road (where you are wildly inconsistent) against a team you're better than?

Gut check time. Big time.

They're all big games from here on out. Even with our road woes, this should be a win. Losses seem to motivate us and wins seem to get us overconfident. We'll see how the worst road loss motivates us. I'm feeling we will incur two more losses, but I don't see this as one...but my confidence is not what it once was.

Wondering if Kevon will come off the shelf for this one.

It's put up or shut up time. We know how good we can be, we've seen it. It's time to focus, every game from here on out is crucial.

The next 5 games are eminently winnable. We "should" be 23-5 going into the final stretch. If that's the case we should still contend for the title.

Yep. This last month is going to define this iteration of the team: a what could have been team or a continuing good tradition team. McNeese is no cupcake this season. They have not given anyone an easy game. It's a long trip, but the way we just got our butt kicked should help. If we're the latter of the two teams, a win on Thursday is imperative.

Agree.
RedRiverLa
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Agree! I never thought I'd say this, but we have to start making our point blank layup attempts. Complain all we want in the big picture about whether it's coaching or not, but it's about execution after being put in the right position.

Last year in Lake Charles was last year's version of Saturday in Beaumont. Time to change the narrative.

I so hope you are right.

But, what have we seen in our conference road games that would indicate this game will be nothing but another close game against (what we all believe is) an inferior opponent.

I don't even want to think about us losing this game, but, I know it's in the mind of people.

We're only a game back in the loss column of 1st...but, we're also only two games up from the 9th spot.

This is the epitome of "must win," not only for confidence but, conference standings.

5 point loss to ACU
7 point loss to UNO in OT
5 point loss to Nicholls
9 point win against SELA
6 point loss to Lamar
10 point loss to Sam

No reason to not think this will be close, but hopefully like 5 of these 6, a win.

Got zero help from teams on Wed night, in terms of standings.

Even more importance placed on this game

Game day!!! It's a great day to be a Lumberjack as we go into Cajun company to take down the Cowboys. We've got some work to do. Eight games left. Time to start chopping wood!

But it's past 5 so go ahead and get your cold ones going. Planning to turn down the tv and turn on the radio broadcast. I definately need a homer call for this game.

I would be shocked if there were 200 people in this building tonight.

Doesn't look like it online. Looks like twenty. All seniors starting tonight!

No 0-16 tonight; 1-1 from three. Edit: 3-3.

I don't mind Kevon and Shannon being 6&7 off the bench. Best bench in the league.

Edit: Kevon looks rusty. Hitting long range, missing short.

There's a school of 8 thousand students a mile away in a town of 70 thousand and NOBODY is here. Big empty rodeo arena with a basketball court in the middle.

Shows the respect basketball gets there. McNeese currently on pace for 36 turnovers.

6-7 threes. Opening up this game. Err I mean 7-8. 8-9. 9-10.

Canete pronounced as can-TEE

Apparently McNeese doesn't believe in guarding the three point line. Can you imagine when UCA plays them?

There are 200 people.

Coaches, players and staff for each team. 50
Cheerleaders. 15
Band. 25

Then a solid 120 in the crowd.

200. Nailed it.
