McNeese State Women Win at the end at Oral Roberts

Arianna James' put back lay-up lifts the McNeese Women's Basketball team to a 72 to 71 win over Oral Roberts in Tulsa, Oklahoma. McNeese traveled by seven at half, but stingy defense in the second half became the difference. The Cowgirls were led in scoring by Caitlyn Baggett with 15. The Women are now 10-9 overall and 5-3 in Southland Play.

The Cowboys weren't as successful, falling to the Golden Eagles 75 to 54. McNeese made runs throughout the second half to get back into the game, but scoring droughts at the end of both halfs led to their demise. The Cowboys played this game two days after a three overtime thriller with Central Arkansas. Kevin Hardy led the team with 12 points. The Cowboys are now 8-10 overall and 2-6 in League Play.

Next up for both teams is Stephen F. Austin on Wednesday at the Lake Charles Civic Center.
