LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - A 16-home game slate, including contests against Louisiana-Lafayette, Toledo and Central Michigan, highlights the 2014-15 McNeese Cowboys men’s basketball schedule.

The Cowboys will play seven of those 16 home games before the Southland Conference season begins. Last year, McNeese had just one home game before league play, and just 10 for the season.

In addition to ULL, Toledo and CMU, the Cowboys will also get back to hosting conference rivals Lamar and Northwestern State, two teams McNeese played only on the road last year.

The Cowboys will open the season on Nov. 14 at Baylor before opening their home season on Nov. 18 against Louisiana College.
