    UL Basketball Bridges fills gaps in Cajuns' game {i-camera}

    LOUISIANA La. Need points?

    Louisiana's Laurie Bridges scored 21 against the University of Mobile.

    Running short on rebounds?

    Bridges cleaned the glass for 9 caroms against No. 25 Dayton, 7 in a 3-point loss at No. 4 Arizona and 7 in Sun Belt Conference play against South Alabama.

    If it's sharing the ball you need, Bridges can provide assists, too.

    He dished off for game-high totals five times this season, including 7 against Valparaiso, and is the team leader on the season with 46.

    Getting the ball back is no problem, either.

    Bridges had 5 steals against Loyola-New Orleans and has paced the team in thefts four times en route to 21 on the year.

    A couple of times, Bridges even got up for a blocked shot.

    The 6-foot-4 senior from New Orleans will do whatever it takes to win games, and it doesn't really matter to him what that task is.

    "At Carver, I went one-through-five," Bridges said of his high school days at Carver High in New Orleans. "I'd bring the ball up against pressure. I shot it when we needed that. And I'd get the rebound if we had to have it.

    "I've pretty much been like this my whole life."
