MONROE, La. (AP) - Hunter Williams scored 15 points to help Troy complete a season sweep of Louisiana-Monroe, beating the Warhawks 71-64 in overtime Saturday in a Sun Belt Conference game.

Emil Jones added 13 and Jeff Mullahey chipped in 10 off the bench for Troy, which defeated Louisiana-Monroe 64-55 on Jan. 10.

Troy (9-12, 4-6), which has beaten Louisiana-Monroe (3-13, 2-8) eight straight times, extended its lead to 10 points, 38-28, on Tevin Calhoun's 3-pointer 3:40 into the second half. But Louisiana-Monroe trimmed the lead to 57-54 before Trent Mackey's 3-pointer with 2 seconds left sent the game into OT.

In overtime, Jones sandwiched two jumpers around an Amos Olatayo layup and Ray Chambers hit a jump shot to give Troy the lead for good, 63-59.

Olatayo led Louisiana-Monroe with 26 points. His layup with 1:51 left in overtime made it 63-61 but Troy outscored Louisiana-Monroe 8-3 the rest of the way.
