LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) Kadeem Coleby scored 20 points and grabbed nine rebounds, and Louisiana-Lafayette held off a Central Florida comeback for a 61-60 victory Wednesday night.

The Ragin' Cajuns (6-8) led 54-41 with 5:41 to play before a 3-pointer by Marcus Jordan started a 16-5 run that brought the Knights (8-3) within two points, 59-57, with 36 seconds left.

Raymone Andrews missed 1 of 2 free throws with 23 seconds left to leave Louisiana-Lafayette's lead at three points, but Jordan's attempt at a tying 3-pointer missed with 7 seconds left.
