The ULM/ULL rivalry was on display once again on Saturday when ULL defeated the Warhawks (13-10, 6-5 SBC) 83-76. A strong second half push wasn’t enough for ULM as they continue to struggle on the road.

The first half was plagued by poor shooting and offensive blunders. ULM went 11-for-30 (37 percent) on field goals and 3-for-11 (28 percent) on 3-pointers.

However, Coach Richard was able to ignite a spark at halftime and the Warhawks came out ready to play in the second half.

Daishon Smith led the way with 25 points, but they weren’t enough as ULM fell to ULL.

The team ended the night 28-for-59 (48 percent) on field goals, 8-for-24 on 3-pointers and 12-for-17 (71 percent) on free throws. The Warhawks also had 36 points in the paint.

Travis Munnings ended the night with 16 points and nine rebounds, JD Williams recorded 12 points and eight rebounds while Michael Ertel ended with 12 points.

ULM is now 13-11 on the season and 6-6 in the conference. The Warhawks will travel to Texas for a showdown on Thursday Feb. 21 with Texas State.
