LITTLE ROCK (AP) - 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.

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%.

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.
