CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It was a great night Thursday for the Islanders with both the men's and women's basketball teams getting wins over visiting McNeese.
Steve Lutz's men overcame a huge Cowboys run to get the victory 60-56. McNeese went on a 19-0 run between the end of the first half and beginning of the second, but it was Isaac Mushila (18 pts, 17 reb.) and De'Lazarus Keys (12 pts., 10 reb.) that powered Texas A&M-CC to the comeback.
The women overcame a slow start shooting wise with Alecia Westbrook leading the way in a 72-61 win over the Cowgirls. Westbrook had a game-high 23 points as both the women and men have now combined to go to 17-0 at home this season.
