LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -
Cowboy Basketball head coach Dave Simmons has always said a tough non-conference schedule is important to his team's success.
The 2010-2011 season will continue to follow that approach.
McNeese State men's basketball has officially released their upcoming schedule. It includes non-conference battles against Washington, Miami (Fla.), Georgia State, Sacramento State, Texas A&M, Southern Mississippi, and UL-Lafayette.
The 2010 home opener will be on November 16th, when Georgia State visits Lake Charles. At the time of the original schedule release, there is only one game that will be played at the Lake Charles Civic Center. That will be on December 19th against Sacramento State.
Here is the complete MSU basketball schedule in the official release from McNeese State University's athletic department:
