Privateers Drop Season Opener

Sr G Derek St. Hilaire
After a solid start, the Privateers (0-1) surrendered a 20-2 run at Ole Miss and lost convincingly on opening night in Oxford by a 82-61 score.

New Orleans led the host Rebels 17-11 early before the big run put Mississippi up for good.  Derek St. Hilaire was the only Privateer in double figures with 21 points.  Much like in Saturday's exhibition game against Loyola, turnovers hurt their cause, as UNO committed 19 as a team.

UNO will open their home schedule on Saturday afternoon at Lakefront Arena.
