JD Williams made a layup with 1:26 to play to pull Louisiana-Monroe within 62-62 before Smith hit a jumper late in the shot clock to push the lead back to three.
Trevell Cunningham then stole the ball and raced to the other end for a layup to push the lead to 66-61 with a half-minute to go. The Warhawks missed their next shot but got the rebound and turned the ball over, allowing the Tigers to pull out the win.
