The Privateers concluded their season in the quarterfinals at the Southland Tournament with a loss to Northwestern State, 82-79.

New Orleans came out the gate sluggish, falling behind by double digits early and shooting poorly.  They were able to fight back and take a one-point lead on a couple of different occasions but just couldn't take control, seeming a step slow defensively and on the boards while playing a second consecutive day.

Damion Rosser, second team all-Southland, capped a fine season with a 28-point effort to lead UNO.  Rodney Carson Jr. had 13, Derek St. Hilaire had 12, and Troy Green 10.
