St. Hilaire, UNO Stay Hot in Win

St. Hilaire does it again
Last week the Privateers used a sizzling offensive performance to dominate Incarnate Word, and that carried over in Saturday night's 99-84 victory over McNeese State at Lakefront Arena.

There were other similarities, such as another Derek St. Hilaire lights-out performance.  St. Hilaire beat the buzzer with a last-second layup to send New Orleans to the locker room up 52-41 and wrap up a 20-point first half.

He was joined by his teammates for an offensive show that rivaled last week's.  UNO made 10 three pointers, and also outrebounded the visiting Cowboys 43-31.  St. Hilaire led the way with a monster 33-point night, and Damion Rosser added 20.  Troy Green chipped in 12.

New Orleans (3-9, 2-2) will finish a three-game homestand on Wednesday night against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
