Louisiana Tech and UNO keep winning while LSU loses again



Louisiana Tech improved to 6-1 in CUSA with an 81-57 victory over North Texas. The Bulldogs only led by three points at halftime, but outscored the Mean Green 48-27 in the 2nd half. 
 
A 24-3 run in the 2nd half by the Dunkin Dogs put the game out of the reach.
 
Jacobi Boykins led the way with his first career double-double, 20 points and 10 rebounds. DaQuan Bracey added 17 points.
 
The upcoming week will be a big one for the Bulldogs. They'll visit UAB on Thursday and Middle Tennessee on Saturday. The Blue Raiders are in first place in CUSA with a 7-0 record. 
 
UNO remains in first place in the Southland thanks to an 81-63 win over Central Arkansas. The Privateers have won 7 of their last 8 and lead Sam Houston State by one game in the conference standings. Senior Nate Frye from Houma had a good game off the bench, scoring 16 points and hitting two 3-pointers.
 
Same old story for the LSU Tigers, who lost their 5th straight. They didn't play much defense, as they allowed Arkansas to shoot 53% from the field, 8-of-16 from 3-point territory and the Razorbacks won 99-86.
 
A bright spot for LSU was freshman Skylar Mays, who had a career-high 22 points. Duop Reath added 17 points, but was 3-of-10 from the free throw line. Antonio Blakeney reached double figures for a 9th straight game as he finished with 14. 
 
The Tigers are now 1-6 in the SEC and 9-9 overall. Up next for LSU is a home game against 19th ranked Florida on Wednesday night.
