Privateers Clobber UIW in Rematch

After dropping a close one to Southland bottom dweller Incarnate Word a week ago, the Privateers (15-9, 8-1) exacted revenge on the lakefront with an 84-57 victory over the Cardinals.

New Orleans broke open what was a close game for the first few minutes, using a 19-2 run to extend their lead to 35-16.  UNO led by as many as 26 in the second half and was never threatened.

Troy Green led a balanced Privateer attack with 18 points.  Tyson Jackson added 16, and Simeon Kirkland has 12 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists.

UNO, remaining in first place with the victory, gets a week off before taking on McNeese next Saturday on the lakefront.
