NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) — Luke Phillips scored eight of his 11 points in overtime and Louisiana-Monroe scored the last nine points of the game on Sunday to defeat Northwestern State 92-83.
Phillips hit two 3-pointers in OT but it was his layup on a feed from Koreem Ozier that broke an 83-83 tie with 2:10 to play. Marco Morency followed with a jumper and then assisted a Phillips 3.
Northwestern State was down 76-69 when Jairus Roberson was fouled on a 3-point attempt with 24 seconds to play in regulation. He made all three free throws and then after Ozier missed two free throws, Roberson converted a four-point play to tie the game with 19 seconds to go.
