UNO Fades Late at Northwestern

St. Hilaire led UNO
with 27 points
For a healthy portion of the evening, it looked like the heavy underdog Privateers (1-2) were about to spring an upset at Northwestern, but the Wildcats surged late to secure an 83-67 win.

New Orleans led 37-35 at the half, and extended that lead to 46-37 in the early portion of the second half.  UNO led as late as 59-58, but Northwestern hit several killer threes down the stretch to put them away.

Derek St. Hilaire paced the Privateers with a 27-point outing, though he shot just 10-for-27 and 2-for-8 from downtown.  Tyson Jackson joined him in double figures with 10.

The Bucs return to Lakefront Arena on Friday when they host CUSA's Rice Owls.
