Privateers Roll in Opener

Erik Thomas
After a sluggish start that saw New Orleans trailing LaGrange College 23-22, the Privateers (1-0) stepped up their defensive intensity and rode a remarkable effort from Erik Thomas to a 103-67 victory on opening night at Lakefront Arena.

In just 19 minutes, Thomas, who didn't start, recorded a double-double with 31 points and 10 rebounds. Christavious Gill added 13, and 6'9" newcomer Makur Puou added 10 along with 8 boards.

UNO now begins its first road trip of the season with a televised contest this Wednesday at Oklahoma State.
