CONWAY, Ark. (AP) — James Harvey scored 17 points with four 3-pointers, Kalob Ledoux added 16 points with three 3s, and McNeese State held off Central Arkansas 76-72 on Wednesday night.
Quatarrius Wilson added 12 points with 15 boards for his third consecutive double-double and Jarren Greenwood added 10 points with nine assists for the Cowboys (9-14, 6-7 Southland Conference), who held the Bears to 38.5 percent shooting from the field.
Trailing by 15 at halftime, the Bears closed to 69-68 on Thatch Unruh's 3 with 3:05 left, but the Cowboys led 76-70 on Ledoux's 3 with 58 seconds to go. Mathieu Kamba was fouled on a made layup but missed a free throw that would have cut Central Arkansas' deficit to three points. McNeese State missed the front end of 1-and-1s on its final two possessions.
Kamba had 25 points and 12 boards, Jordan Howard added 14 points, Hayden Koval had 10 with 11 rebounds, and Deandre Jones had 10 boards for the Bears (13-13, 7-6).
