McNeese Surges Late, Drills UNO

Bryson Robinson
It was an ugly game on the lakefront, but it ended up looking okay to visiting McNeese State, who knocked off UNO 65-52 on Saturday evening.

With backcourt henchman Troy Green enduring a miserable outing, Bryson Robinson had just about all the offensive burden resting on him.  But his 27 points weren't enough on a night where the Privateers got nothing from anyone other than he and Jaylen Key.  Key, who was back in the lineup after missing a few games with an ankle injury, added 16 on 8-for-10 shooting.

Even with all the offensive ineptitude, New Orleans maneuvered its way into a 45-44 lead in the second half before collapsing under the weight of a late 16-0 McNeese run that put the game away.

UNO next heads to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi for a road tilt on Wednesday night.
