MONROE, La. (AP) - Derick Beltran scored 26 points as Southern University trampled Louisiana-Monroe for a 68-39, nonconference victory Thursday night.

The second half wasn't much better for Louisiana-Monroe, when the Warhawks shot just 22.7 percent (5 of 22).

Malcolm Miller had 16 points and seven rebounds off the bench for Southern.
