After a 1-9 start, the Privateers (4-9, 3-2) have rattled off three straight dominant victories, the third of which came Wednesday night at Lakefront Arena over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, 87-68.

Even with recent phenomenon Derek St. Hilaire held in check with just 6 points, New Orleans boasted a steady, balanced offensive attack, with five players in double figures.  UNO jumped to a huge early lead, peaking at 37-15, and were never seriously threatened.

Damion Rosser led the way with 15 points, and and Rodney Carson Jr. added 14.  Troy Green had 13 and Lamont Berzat 12.  Jahmel Myers posted a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

UNO will take its winning streak on the road for a Saturday afternoon contest at Nicholls.
