LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Raheem Appleby scored 17 points and Louisiana Tech held on to beat UALR 75-73 Monday night, giving the Bulldogs a sweep of the nonconference rivalry.

Louisiana Tech only shot 36 percent from the field but connected on 26 free throws in 36 tries and held a 45-33 rebounding advantage. The Bulldogs (9-3) also beat the Trojans 70-52 on Nov. 14 in Ruston, La. It was the final nonconference game of the season for both teams.

John Gillon led UALR (8-5) with 15 points and Leroy Isler had 11 points in the Trojans' first home loss of the season in eight games. UALR shot 45 percent.

The Trojans could have tied it in the final seconds, but James White missed two free throws. UALR got the ball back but Josh Hagins missed a jumper for the tie. Neither team led by double digits in the contest.
