LAKE CHARLES, La. -- Craig McFerrin scored 18 points and McNeese State pulled away easily in the second half, beating Lamar 74-50 on Saturday.
Lamar had a 10-point lead in the first half and went into halftime with a 31-23 advantage. But McNeese State dominated the second half, outscoring the Cardinals 28-2 at one point en route to the victory.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
