MONROE, La. (AP) — Majok Deng scored a career-high 33 points on 12-of-16 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds and Louisiana-Monroe rallied to beat NAIA member Central Baptist 101-76 on Friday night.

The last time the Warhawks scored 100 points or more was against Champion Baptist in 2014, when they got 106.

Justin Roberson and Nick Coppola scored 19 apiece — a career high for Roberson — and Travis Munnings had a career-high 12 rebounds for the Warhawks (5-5), who shot 59 percent from the field and made 11 of 20 3-pointers (55 percent).

Trailing 42-35 at halftime, the Warhawks scored 15 unanswered points to lead 68-60 with 9:33 to play. Deng, who sat out the last three games with a leg injury, scored seven points amid a 9-4 run and the Warhawks led by 11. Roberson scored a 3 and a layup to put the Warhawks over 100 points.

Jayln McBride led the Mustangs with 27 points and five 3-pointers.
