The Cajuns are 2-0 at home this season.

Lamar, who is 2-2 on the young season, is paced by junior forward Dominique Edwards, who is averaging 16.8 points, along with 9.3 rebounds a contest.

Wednesday’s game marks the 62nd meeting between the two programs, with Lamar holding a 41-20 edge. The teams last met on Nov. 27, 2009, at the World Vision Classic at Baylor, with the Lady Cardinals claiming a 66-58 win.
