Lafayette, LA (KAIT) - John Brady and the Red Wolves had no players score in double figures, had 19 turnovers and outrebounded the opposition 40-32. Yet ASU took the Ragin Cajuns down to the wire. But Louisiana-Lafayette had two players score in double figures and held on for a 56-54 win in the final ASU road game of the regular season.
In the final 10 seconds, Daniel Bryant and Jejuan Brown each had shots to tie the game, but they were denied by Colby Baptiste and the rim respectively.
Tyren Johnson led all scorers with 15 points, while Randell Daigle chipped in 10 for the Ragin Cajuns.
