I know football season is still going on but basketball has started now to.  The McNeese men's basketball team started the 2016-2017 season last Friday night when they traveled up to Indiana and took on Purdue.

The #15 ranked Boilermakers beat the pokes team 109-65 and the Cowboys started the season 0-1.  Now the pokes return back to Lake Charles and will have their first home game of the year.

McNeese will host Louisiana College tonight.  Louisiana College has already played two game in the 2016 season.  They are 0-2 after two straight loses to University of Louisiana Monroe and the University of Texas El Paso.

The Pokes and Wildcats will lock up tonight at 7:00 p.m. inside the Burton Coliseum.  If you can't make it out to the game, then you can listen to the game on our sister station KLCL 1470 Am, KJEF 1290 AM and on cajunradio.com/listen-live.
