Erik Thomas weathered early foul
trouble to lead the way with 18 points
In their first home game against crosstown rival Tulane since the 2010-11 season, the Privateers (3-3) led by as many as 27 before securing a comfortable 74-59 win on Tuesday night.

New Orleans, using a balanced scoring attack and a swarming zone defense, never trailed in the contest, soaring to a 14-2 lead to start the evening. Erik Thomas led the offensive attack with 18 points. Christavious Gill and Travin Thibodeaux were integral as well with 14 points each.

UNO will return to the road on Saturday afternoon at Washington State. The contest will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
