New Orleans, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - Anthony Walker registered a double- double with 12 points and 10 rebounds as the Mavericks of Texas-Arlington slipped by ULM, 68-65, in the opening round of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament at Lakefront Arena.

Reger Dowell tallied a team-best 18 points and handed out four assists for the sixth-seeded Mavericks (15-16), although he shot just 2-of-11 behind the 3- point line on the night. Jamel Outler accounted for 16 points off the bench and fellow reserve Lonnie McClanahan 12 points. Brandon Edwards cleared a game-high 12 rebounds.

The seventh-seeded Warhawks (10-17) were paced by Tylor Ongwae with 20 points, shooting only 1-of-6 behind the 3-point line before fouling out. Marvin Williams came up a rebound shy of a double-double as he contributed 14 points for ULM.

After hitting a decent 4-of-10 on the perimeter in the first half, ULM fell to a dismal 1-of-12 in the second frame, opening the door for the UTA comeback.
