Saturdays game one of a six-game homestand went well for the McNeese Cowgirls and according to Head Coach Kacie Cryer, the defense won the day.  What a huge win for our girls today and it all started on defense. We struggled to put the ball in the hole at times but we were getting stops on defense and our rebounding set us apart today.
