Privateers Coast to First Win

St. Hilaire again led
UNO in scoring
After a tough opening night in Oxford, Mississippi, the Privateers (1-1) got into the win column with a comfortable 79-41 victory over Spring Hill in Saturday's home opener on the lakefront.

New Orleans raced out to a large early lead, extending its lead to 30 points at the break.  The huge early advantage enabled them to survive a sluggish second half without being threatened.

Derek St. Hilaire, as he did so often down the stretch of 2020-21, led UNO in scoring with 17 points. De'Sean Allen-Eikens joined him in double figures with 10.  Freshman Jamond Vincent, playing in just his second collegiate game, led the Privateers in rebounding with 9.

The visiting Badgers shot just 28.1% against the UNO defense and committed 20 turnovers.

Next up will be a trip to Chicago to take on Northwestern before returning home to take on Rice next Friday night.
