Recap: Ark-Little Rock vs. Louisiana

Little Rock, AR (Sports Network) - Will Neighbour recorded a double-double with 17 points and a game-high 11 rebounds as the Arkansas-Little Rock Trojans picked up a 77-68 win over the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns in Sun Belt Conference action at the Jack Stephens Center.

Also scoring in double figures for the Trojans (16-14, 10-9 Sun Belt) were Josh Hagins with 14 points, John Gillon and Ben Dillard with 13 apiece and Leroy Isler 10 points as the squad snapped a four-game slide.
