Snake Eyes in Starkvegas

G Bryson Robinson
After a promising start, the Privateers (1-3) took their third straight loss on this road trip, falling in an 82-59 rout to Mississippi State in Starkville.

New Orleans fought the Bulldogs to a 19-19 tie early, but an 11-2 State run gave them control of the game, which they never relinquished.  A 10-point halftime deficit turned ugly in the second half, with UNO falling behind by as many as 28.

Bryson Robinson and Troy Green each had 14 to lead a fairly anemic offensive attack.  The Privateers shot just 38% from the field, 2-of-11 on threes, and were dominated 45-27 on the boards.

After a week off, UNO takes its road show to Hawaii on November 24 for the final game of the trip.
