Privateers Play in Peoria, Win

For the second straight season, New Orleans defeated a Missouri Valley Conference opponent on the road, downing Bradley in Peoria 64-51. The Privateers were in control early and held a steady lead throughout the game, as the Braves got no closer than five points early in the second half.

Last season, the Privateers bested the MVC's Southern Illinois Salukis.

Christavious Gill and Nate Frye had 13 each for UNO. New Orleans won despite shooting just 38% from the field and 56% from the line, largely due to holding the Braves to an anemic 32% and 11% from three-point range.

The Privateers will stay in the midwest and take on Northwestern out of the Big 10 on Saturday night.
