    LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) -- Darris Manciel's 10 points and seven rebounds led McNeese State to a 69-57 victory over Texas State in the Southland Conference opener for both teams Thursday night.

    Both teams shot poorly, with McNeese hitting only 38.2 percent of its shots and Texas State 39.6 percent.

    But McNeese (6-6, 1-0 SLC) benefited from balanced scoring that included 47 points from its reserves. Andrew Queen and J.T. Williams each scored nine points, while Kinley Sellers and John Ford each scored eight.

    Anthony Dill led Texas State (6-6, 0-1) with 16 points and 13 rebounds, while Josh Naylor scored 14 and Rory Green 13.

    But Texas State got little scoring otherwise and also turned the ball over 22 times, leading to 15 McNeese points.
