Mike James scored 26 points, Devon Lamb added 12 and Lamar defeated McNeese State 70-49 in the Southland Conference tournament championship on Saturday, sending Pat Knight into the NCAA tournament for the first time as a head coach. The Cardinals (23-11) have won six in a row since Knight ripped his seniors after a loss to Stephen F. Austin on Feb. 22, saying they were ''stealing money by being on scholarship.'' Lamar will return to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2000.

Patrick Richard scored 16 points, but went 4 for 20 from the field for McNeese State (17-15).
