LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - For 60 minutes the McNeese Cowboys gave LSU everything they could ask for, but the Tigers were too much in overtime, winning 78-66.

Stephan Martin hit a jumper to give the Pokes a 60-58 lead with 38 seconds left, but LSU's Storm Warren made a lay up to tie the game and send it into overtime.  The Tigers then outscored McNeese 18-6 in the extra period.

The Cowboys finished with three players in double figures.  C.J. Collins scored 15 points, Stephan Martin added 14 and P.J. Alawoya had a double double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

McNeese will return to action on Sunday against Sacramento State in the Civic Center.
