McNeese State never trailed in the second half. The Islanders (1-12, 0-3) trimmed a 10-point lead to two, 52-50 with 11:07 left, but another 3-pointer by Eackles started the Cowboys on an 11-2 run.

Eackles finished with 15 points, Kevin Hardy had 14 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, and Craig McFerrin had 11 points for McNeese State.
