LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) Will Neighbour had 24 points on 7-of-9 shooting and hauled in 12 rebounds to help push Arkansas-Little Rock past Louisiana-Lafayette 80-69 Thursday night.

The Trojans (11-10, 6-3 Sun Belt Conference) shot 47.2 percent from the field, with Josh Haggins scoring 12 points and Ben Dillard adding 11. Neighbour was 9 of 11 from the foul line.

Louisiana-Lafayette (12-9, 3-5) was held to 37.7 percent shooting, including a 4-of-20 performance from beyond the arc. Elfrid Payton led the Ragin' Cajuns with 20 points and J.J. Davenport had 14 with 11 boards.

Holding a 64-63 lead with 6:59 remaining, Neighbour made a layup and Kemy Osse converted a three-point play, igniting a 16-6 run to close the game.
