LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Tylor Ongwae and Nick Coppola each scored 15 points as Louisiana-Monroe held off Arkansas-Little Rock 66-65 on Saturday night.

ULM led by as much as 15 in the second half, but UALR surged back to make it 60-58 after a Josh Hagins’ 3-pointer with 5:45 left. Ongwae followed by hitting 3 of 4 free throws and Chinedu Amajoyi converted a three-point play to go up eight.

The Warhawks went cold from there, missing their next three 3-point attempts and missing two free throws, which allowed UALR to climb within one. After another missed pair of free throws by ULM, Hagins missed a jumper, but the ball went out of bounds off Amajoyi. Hagins’ second-chance runner couldn’t find the net in the final seconds.

ULM (10-16, 7-11 Sun Belt) shot 47.8 percent, with R.J. McCray scoring 11 points.

Hagins led UALR (14-16, 9-9) with 18 points and seven assists.
