    Martino Brock's 3-pointer brought the Jaguars within one, 69-68, but they would miss three straight baskets as Louisiana-Lafayette went on a 6-0 run. J.J. Thomas' free throws capped the spurt with 17 seconds left.

    South Alabama, which shot 33.3 percent for the game (25 of 75) was just 1 of 10 in overtime. The Ragin' Cajuns made 4 of 9 from the field in the extra period.
