The 2020-2021 men and women's basketball teams are getting set for a brand new season starting this week. The pokes and cowgirls are set to open up the new season as both teams will be on the road this week.

McNeese interim athletic director and men’s basketball head coach Heath Schroyer announced on Monday that the first 2,000 fans to arrive at Burton Coliseum for each of the McNeese Cowboy and Cowgirl basketball home games will be admitted free.

The Cowboys will have 14 homes games while the Cowgirls will have eight home games this season.

McNeese interim athletic director and men’s basketball head coach Heath Schroyer explained

Our community has suffered a great deal. There are many people who have lost homes. It’s been a very hard time. One thing we’d like to do, and with the approval of President Burckel, we are going to have free admission for all of our games (men’s and women’s) for the first 2,000 fans.

Due to COVID-19 virus, games could be canceled or added in a day’s notice and fans attending games at Burton Coliseum will enter through the west side doors only.

The McNeese Cowboys basketball team will travel up to Lincoln, Nebraska to take on the Cornhuskers this Wednesday, November 25, 2020. The game will be televised on the Big ten network.

The Cowgirls will travel up to Ruston to take on Louisiana Tech and that game is tipping off at 6:30pm.
