LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The McNeese Cowboys jumped to a 47-24 lead at halftime, but had to hang on to beat the Jarvis Christian Bulldogs by a final of 96-91 on Thursday night.
The Pokes were led by last week's Southland Conference Player of the Week, Patrick Richard, who had 24 points. Daniel Richard chipped in with 15 points and C.J. Collins had 11 points and 5 assists.
The win improves the Cowboys record to 4-3 this season. McNeese will return to action on Saturday, welcoming Louisiana Tech to Burton Coliseum.
