LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) Patrick Richard and Dontae Cannon scored 16 points each as McNeese State edged Texas-San Antonio 58-54 Wednesday night in Southland Conference play.

It was the seventh straight win for the Cowboys (14-10, 10-2), who remain atop the Southland East. It's McNeese State's first win over the Roadrunners in four years. Last season, Texas-San Antonio beat McNeese State twice, including the finals of the Southland tournament.

The Roadrunners (15-11, 7-5) led 30-29 at halftime. They hit six of 11 3-point attempts against the McNeese State zone. After the Cowboys went man-to-man in the second half, Texas-San Antonio was 3 for 15 from the arc. The defensive switch enabled McNeese State to go on a 17-5 run and lead 46-35.

Melvin Johnson led the Roadrunners with 18 points. Jeromie Hill and Michael Hall had 11 apiece. Richard recorded his fifth double-double of the season, grabbing 12 rebounds. Desharick Guidry added 10 points.
