NEWARK, Del. (AP) — Francis Alonso and Isaiah Miller each scored 16 points each and UNC Greensboro held off Louisiana Tech in the closing minutes for an 80-73 victory on Saturday night at the Delaware Invitational.
After Louisiana Tech cut the gap to five points with 11 seconds left, UNCG’s Kyrin Galloway blocked a drive by Derric Jean and Miller hit two free throws to ice it.
The sixth win in seven games is the best start in UNC Greensboro program history, and gives Louisiana Tech (4-2) two losses in its last three games after starting the season 3-0.
After losing by six to then-No. 23 Louisiana State, UNC Greensboro has reeled off five straight wins.
