BEAUMONT, Tex. — For the second time in their past three games, the Lamar Cardinals topped the 100-point mark in front of their home crowd.

The Cardinals entered Wednesday’s game against the Southern-New Orleans Knights on the heels of their first loss of 2017-18. Lamar fell to the Cal State Bakersfield Roadrunners on Sunday, 85-73. In front of their home fans on Wednesday, the Cardinals were looking for a big bounce-back performance to get back in the win column.

Behind a balanced scoring attack, the Cardinals did just that.

Six different players scored in double-figures, including a career-high 25 points from Nick Garth, who came off the bench to pace the offensive attack for the Cardinals. Despite trailing in the opening minutes, Lamar was never seriously challenged throughout Wednesday’s contest.
