RUSTON -(LT Media Relations) Guard Kenyon McNeail came off the bench to score a team-high 18 points to lead Louisiana Tech (8-2) to a hard-fought 65-55 victory over Southern Miss (6-3) on Saturday night in front of 2,575 fans inside the Thomas Assembly Center.

"[I was] very, very pleased with our effort," said head coach Michael White. "Just to get a win against a really good team, I would've been thrilled to beat them by half a point. They had Arizona on the ropes the other night, the No. 8 team in the country. They are very solid. Their defense is very unique and sound. It feels good to beat a very quality team on our home floor."

Forward J.L. Lewis also chipped in with a season-high eight points and four rebounds as the Bulldog bench totaled 32 of the team's 65 points and came away with the 30th straight non-conference victory at the TAC.

Box Score

EL PASO, Texas – (UI Media Relations) It was remarkably similar to Thursday night’s huge comeback at Eastern Washington, but the magic wasn’t there for Idaho men’s basketball on Saturday in a 64-60 loss at UTEP.

Idaho (3-4) trailed by 18 points, 52-34, with 12:02 to play, but rattled off a 17-2 run to pull within three points, 54-51, but UTEP (3-5) made just enough plays down the stretch to hold off the Vandal rally.

The Vandal men closed the gap to two points on two occasions in the final 90 seconds, but couldn’t make the final push to tie or take the lead.
