Senior guard Trevor Gaskins contributed six points to Louisiana Tech University’s 73-71 victory at Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday night.

Led by the season-best 19 points of freshman guard Raheem Appleby, the ’Dogs (3-4) halted their three-game losing streak with a 73-71 victory over I-20 rival Louisiana-Monroe at Fant-Ewing Coliseum Saturday night.

Tech had a six-point (72-66) advantage with just under 30 seconds left in the game, but the Warhawks (1-7) got to within one point (72-71) on a 3-point field goal by guard Fred Brown and back-to-back free throws from guard Charles Wineborne with 4.4 seconds remaining.
