|Warhawks can't hang on against Trojans|
UALR used a pressure defense all night and shot lights out in the second half to overcome a sluggish first and down the ULM men's basketball team 70-61 inside Fant-Ewing Coliseum in Monroe, on Saturday evening.
ULM (9-16, 5-9 Sun Belt) struggled on offense all evening, but saw its shooting clip dip to 33.3 percent in the second half. UALR (19-6, 12-2 Sun Belt) used its defensive pressure and an offense that hit on better than 60 percent of its second half shots to overcome a five-point deficit at the intermission and move into first place overall in the league.
Despite a defense that swarmed around him, sophomore Rudy Turner tallied his sixth double-double of the season, ending with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Junior Jarvis Hill scored a team-high 16 points while junior Dynile Forbes came off the bench to add 15.
For the Trojans, Shane Edwards finished with a game-high 18 points. Steven Moore added 16, John Fowler scored 15, and Brandon Patterson chipped in 11, including a team-best 7-for-7 performance from the charity stripe.
Despite seeing a pair of starters depart to the bench early, ULM took an eight-point lead at 20-12 with 9:09 remaining. The two teams played even through the final 10 minutes of the first half to take a five-point advantage into the lockers, 30-25.
Pressed into extra service, the Warhawk bench scored 16 of the team's 30 points in the opening stanza. ULM starters Turner, Hill and sophomore Lawrence Gilbert were whistled for a combined nine fouls in the first period. The Trojans took advantage of the whistles, scoring half of their first half points from the charity stripe on 21 total attempts.
ULM held its advantage through the first five minutes of the second half until John Fowler hit a trey from the wing to give the visitors a 37-35 advantage.
The Warhawks would close the score to within one point on multiple occasions in the second frame, but couldn't retake the lead. UALR led the final 14 minutes of the game and by double digits with over four minutes left.
After shooting 28.6 percent in the opening half, the Trojans finished the game converting on 45.5 percent of their shots.
The Warhawks return to action on Thursday when they travel to Denton, Texas, for a 7 p.m. game against North Texas inside the Super Pit.
