Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun basketball team improved to 2-1 on Saturday afternoon, defeating NAIA opponent LSU-Shreveport by the score of 84-73.

Three different Cajuns finished with double-doubles, helping lead the way.

Senior forward Dou Gueye (pictured) chipped in 17 points and 11 rebounds as well, adding 2 assists, while sophomore guard Mylik Wilson ended the game with 14 points, 10 boards and 7 assists.

A familiar face on LSU-Shreveport led the way for the Pilots as former Ragin' Cajun Kadavion Evans led all scorers with 24, but was 2-9 from beyond the arc.

As a team, the Pilots went 9-31 from three point range, while Louisiana struggled with the 3 ball as well, going 6-26.
