Cajuns give Marlin first win 91-66

Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns jumped out to a quick lead and never looked back in taking a 91-66 win over Louisiana College Monday night at the CAJUNDOME.
The Cajuns got double figure scoring from four players.  Centenary transfer David Perez led the way with 22 points on 8-11 shooting (5-8 from three point range.)  Senior forward Travis Bureau notched his first career double-double with 16 points and 14 rebounds.  Bureau, whose previous career high in rebounds was eight, had a new career high by halftime.
Josh Brown and Scottie Farrington added 15 points each for the Cajuns (1-1) who gave Head Coach Bob Marlin his first win as the Cajuns’ mentor.
The Cajuns jumped out to a 16-2 lead and kept the margin near that figure for most of the first half.  But some sloppy play allowed the Wildcats to get within eight at 38-30 with 2:25 left in the first stanza.  But the Cajuns ended the first half on a 9-0 run to take a 47-30 lead into the locker room.
In the second half, the Cajuns kept the lead between 15-18 points before poor free throw shooting by the Cajuns and some hot shooting by the Wildcats allowed the visitors to cut the lead to nine.  But the Cajuns closed on a 14-0 run to cruise to the victory.
The Cajuns outrebounded Louisiana College 46-31, but the Cajuns turned the basketball over 19 times and made only 10-23 free throws.
St., Martinville native Jelani Mitchell led the Wildcats with 16 points.
The Cajuns leave for Omaha, Nebraska tomorrow morning for a Wednesday night game against Creighton of the Missouri Valley Conference.  You can hear the game on espn1420 and Hot 107.9 with airtime at 6:30pm.
