ULM 82 ULL 53

The ULM women’s basketball team honored its cancer survivors Wednesday night during its Pink Zone Game with a barrage of 3-pointers and a second half surge to defeat Louisiana-Lafayette 82-53 inside Fant-Ewing Coliseum.

ULM (13-11, 6-7) was on fire from all around the 3-point line as it set a team record with 14 made 3-pointers in a game, dropping the old record of 13 made 3s set back in Dec. of 1993. The Warhawks knocked down 14-of-24 attempts in the contest, good for 58.3 percent.

Leading by just five at halftime, ULM used a 23-8 run including four 3-pointers during the first nine minutes of the second frame to push the game wide open, 53-33. The Warhawks also crashed the boards as they topped the Ragin’ Cajuns 46-28 in rebounds and in the process grabbed 22 offensive rebounds.

Junior Kenneth Averette tallied a career-high 16 points and was matched by junior Dynile Forbes for the team-high mark for the Warhawks. Senior Afam Nweke added 12 points and sophomore Lawrence Gilbert added 10 to round out the double-digit scorers.

Randell Daigle tried to shoot the Ragin’ Cajuns back into the game, hitting five treys in the second half on his way to a game-high 23 points.

The win, coupled with the other results around the league, moved ULM (9-15, 5-8 Sun Belt) up two spots in the overall standings. The Warhawks moved into a four-way tie for seventh place, a jumble that includes Thursday night’s opponent Louisiana-Lafayette (8-16, 5-8 Sun Belt).

After a back and forth opening 10 minutes that included a trio of lead changes and five ties, the Warhawks began to pull away.

Tied 21-21 with just over seven minutes remaining in the opening period, the Warhawks offense took off. A pair of treys by Forbes sandwiched around a streaking Averette began a 14-0 run by the Warhawks over a three-minute period to give ULM a double-digit advantage.

The Warhawks would end the half on a 22-6 run over the final seven minutes to stake a 43-27 advantage into the intermission. Forbes had eight points during the stretch to pace ULM with 10 points before the break.
