South Alabama (12-9, 9-4 Sun Belt) used a 19-7 run mid-way through the first half capped off by Allen's lay-up to gain an early lead and make it 26-14 with 6:01 remaining in the first half.
Arkansas-Little Rock (14-10, 8-5) made things interesting late in the second half by completing a 16-8 run over a 7-minute stretch when Ben Dillard sunk a lay-up to cut South Alabama's lead to three, 64-61, with 1:48 to play.
Dillard ended the night with 15 points.
