Lafayette, LA (Sports Network) - Bryant Mbamalu scored a game-high 26 points as the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns posted a 79-70 win over the Trojans of Arkansas-Little Rock in Sun Belt Conference action at the Cajundome.

Alan-Michael Thompson added 13 points, Elfrid Payton 12 and Shawn Long 10 points to go along with a team-high 13 rebounds and five blocked shots for the Ragin' Cajuns (6-9, 2-2 SBC) as they won for the second time in the last three outings.

UALR (8-7, 2-2), still winless in five true road games this season, was paced by Will Neighbour who recorded a double-double with 17 points and a game-high 14 boards, followed by Josh Hagins with 14 points in the setback.
