Trojans Shoot Past Cajuns, 77-68
The road woes for Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns continued Thursday night as they fell to Arkansas-Little Rock, 77-68 at the Jack Stephens Center.
The Cajuns (11-19, 7-12 Sun Belt) have won only once on the road this year, back on December 1 against North Texas.
As has been the case in many of those losses, a poor shooting night led to the loss. Louisiana shot just 27% in the first half en route to a 36-26 deficit. UALR (16-14, 10-9), meanwhile, shot 52%.
The Cajuns trailed by as many as 15 in the second half, but the Cajuns defense forced UALR into numerous turnovers and got within four points, 62-58 with 5:22 remaining, but could get no closer.
Shawn Long led four Cajuns in double figures with 19 points.
The Cajuns will close out the regular season at Louisiana-Monroe Saturday at 4pm.
