MONROE, La. (AP) - Trevon Lewis scored 25 points and Bryan Hammond added 19 to lead Nicholls State over Louisiana-Monroe 82-70 on Monday night, avenging a home loss to the Warhawks two games ago.
Louisiana-Monroe went to the Colonels' place and earned an 86-65 win on Nov. 28 for its only victory of the season.
This time was different, as the Colonels (3-6) opened up an 8-0 lead on the Warhawks' home court and never looked back. Nicholls State led 37-25 at the break and the teams were even at 45-all in the second half, earning the Colonels the victory.
Nicholls State outshot Louisiana-Monroe from the floor, 50 percent (27 of 54) to 38.5 percent (25 of 65).
The Colonels, who have won two straight for the first time this season, play at Texas tomorrow night before returning home.
Charles Winborne scored a game-high 20 points to lead the Warhawks (1-9).
