NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) Amos Olatayo tied a career-high by scoring 30 points, adding nine rebounds, to lead Louisiana-Monroe back from an 18-point second half deficit to beat Northwestern State 84-80 in overtime Thursday night.

Marvin Frazier Jr. of Northwestern State (2-2) tied the score at 78 on a pair of free throws with 1:34 left in overtime. Jalan West then stole the ball from ULM's Nick Coppola, but Frazier missed a 3-point shot and, after grabbing his own offensive rebound, missed another jumper.
