Louisiana hits less than 50-percent of its free throws, falling to Wyoming in overtime Thursday night 69-61.

The Cajuns entered the night hitting better than 80-percent of their free throws on the season, but converted just 13 of 28 Thursday.

Shooting was an all-around issue for Louisiana who recorded season lows both at the line (46.4%) and beyond the arch (17.4%.) The Cajuns 38.6% field goal shooting ties its season low. It is worth noting that Wyoming's arena, situated at 7,700 feet above sea level, is the highest elevated Division I arena.

Kobe Julien led Louisiana with 15 points.

The Cajuns travel to Las Vegas to play Detroit Mercy, and UC irvine next week beginning on Monday.
