Late Run Helps UNO To First Road Win

Trailing 51-48 to host Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, New Orleans scored 13 points in a row to take control and claim their first road win of this strange season.  The final was 69-61.

The run was decisive in a game that had been extremely nip-and-tuck up to that point.  The Privateer offensive attack was fairly balanced, with Troy Green leading the way with 16 points.  Damion Rosser had 13 points and 9 rebounds.  Derek St. Hilaire added 11, including three triples.

For the second consecutive game, the UNO defense held its opponent to under 40% from the field.  The Islanders shot an anemic 32%, scored just 12 points in the paint, and were outrebounded 44-36.

The Privateers will return home on Saturday to play their third game this week when they play a rematch against Nicholls, who blasted them earlier in the season in Thibodaux.
