    MIAMI (AP) -- Jonas Brown sunk a driving layup with 1.2 seconds remaining in regulation, snapping a 66-66 tie and sending Louisiana-Monroe to a 68-66 victory Saturday night.

    It was the first league win for the Warhawks (7-12, 1-6 Sun Belt Conference) who snapped a six-game losing streak. The loss was the third straight one for Florida International (5-12, 2-5).

    Alex Galindo led all scorers with 34 points and had 13 rebounds. Tony Hooper topped the Warhawks with 20 points, 16 of those coming in the first half as Louisiana-Monroe took a 35-28 lead into the break. Brown scored 14 points.

    Louisiana-Monroe led by as many as 14 points at 53-39 with 10:49 to play.

    But Florida International's Galindo scored 29 second-half points, including four 3-pointers and 9-of-11 from the foul line.
