Louisiana got key stops down the stretch to hold off Little Rock's comeback in Wednesday's 49-46 quarterfinals win.

Ty Doucet scored 24 for the Cajuns. Her final field goal with seven minutes to play in the third led the Cajuns to an offensive drought. Louisiana hit just one more field goal in the final 17 minutes, and went scoreless for nearly 15.

That allowed Little Rock back in the game and with 90-seconds to go Kyra Collier cut the Cajuns' lead to one point. Louisiana ended it's scoring drought with a Brandi Williams jumper, and put together stops winning 49-46.

The win advances Louisiana to the Sun Belt semifinals where they'll face Troy Saturday at 5 p.m. in the Smoothie King Center.
