HOT SPRINGS, Ark. -- T.J. Price scored 18 points Friday night and Western Kentucky never trailed in beating Louisiana-Monroe 74-60 in the first round of the Sun Belt Conference tournament.

George Fant scored 12 on 6-of-6 shooting for the Hilltoppers (17-15), who are the sixth seed in the tournament. They meet No. 3 seed South Alabama in Saturday's quarterfinals.

Kyle Koszuta led Louisiana-Monroe (4-23) with 15 points. Millaun Brown scored 12, and Trent Mackey and Amos Olatayo had 10 points each for the Warhawks, who lost their last six games.
