HOT SPRINGS, Ark.(AP) Tony Hooper scored 30 points, including the game-winning 3-pointer, to boost Louisiana-Monroe to a 76-75 win over Louisiana-Lafayette in the first round of the Sun Belt Conference tournament on Saturday night.
The win advances the 10th-seeded Warhawks (11-18), who will play North Texas, the No. 2 seed, on Sunday.
The game-winning shot, Hooper's seventh 3-pointer of the night, came with just one second left and only moments after Lamar Roberson hit a jumper to give the Ragin' Cajuns (13-16) the two-point lead at 75-73.
