LAFAYETTE — Erik McCree and Alex Hamilton combined for 52 points, but second half woes were too much to overcome for Louisiana Tech on the road as the Bulldogs fell to Louisiana-Lafayette, 94-86, on Wednesday night in the Cajundome.
Tech (7-2) held a two-point advantage at the break, holding ULL (4-4) to just 39 points and 20 rebounds, but the Ragin’ Cajuns won the battle of the boards in the second half which helped lead to 55 points in snapping the Bulldogs’ six-game winning streak.
