    LAFAYETTE, La. -- Elfrid Payton scored 23 points, hitting 9 of 9 free throws, as Louisiana-Lafayette held off Troy 76-66 Thursday night.

    The Ragin' Cajuns split the season series, denying Trojans coach Don Maestri his 500th career win for the second straight game. Troy won 71-52 on Feb. 2.

    Alan-Michael Thompson added 20 points and Shawn Long had 18 points and five blocks for Louisiana-Lafayette (11-17, 7-10 Sun Belt Conference), which has won three of its last four games.

    The Ragin' Cajuns led 18-5 en route to a 34-26 halftime advantage. The Trojans tied it at 59 on Deonata Jethroe's layup with 5:03 left, but Thompson hit back-to-back 3-pointers, then Louisiana-Lafayette made 11 of 12 free throws to seal it.

    The Ragin' Cajuns made 23 of 28 foul shots compared to Troy's 11 of 18.
