|Warhawks get second straight win|
Junior Kenneth Averette tied a career high with 14 points and junior Dynile Forbes led four Warhawks in double figures with 21 points as the ULM men's basketball team defeated FIU 81-64 Saturday inside Fant-Ewing Coliseum.
ULM (7-13, 3-6 Sun Belt) dominated the boards in the second half, out rebounding the Golden Panthers 22-7 after halftime. This came after FIU (8-14, 3-6 Sun Belt) had a 26-16 advantage on the boards in the first half.
Senior Afam Nweke just missed out on a second-consecutive career-high scoring performance as he poured in 15 points on 7-for-9 shooting from the floor. Junior Malcolm Thomas put also enjoyed his strong start in league play with 17 points and six rebounds in the victory.
Averette personified the Warhawks' hot shooting night, hitting on 7-for-11 attempts from the floor and 3-for-6 from downtown. As a unit ULM hit on 49.2 percent of its shots including a 54.3 clip in the second half.
The Warhawks held a 13-point lead at the half and never allowed FIU to get closer than 11 the rest of the way. ULM led by as much as 26 as it cruised in the second half while pounding out 30 points in the paint.
The Warhawks trailed 8-6 early, but a pair of treys from Forbes and one from Thomas sparked a 13-0 run that put ULM up 19-8 with just under eight minutes to play in the opening frame.
Averette's tip-in as the halftime buzzer sounded gave the Warhawks a 34-21 lead entering the break. He took that momentum into the second half where he scored nine of his 14 points.
The hot shooting continued in the second half for ULM. By the 12-minute mark the Warhawks built a 20-point advantage. They coasted the rest of the way for the 17-point victory.
ULM will be back in action Jan. 31 in Murfreesboro, Tenn. when it takes on the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee in Sun Belt Conference action.
