UNO Rallies to Win in SLC Quarterfinals

Facing elimination against 11-21 McNeese in the second round of the Southland tournament, New Orleans (18-12) pulled it out of the fire, besting the Cowboys 82-78.

Trailing most of the second half and facing a 70-66 deficit with just minutes to play, UNO launched a game-deciding 11-0 run to secure a come-from-behind victory.

Troy Green led the effort with 21 points.  Derek St. Hilaire was largely neutralized but mustered 16 points.  Jahmel Myers continued his nice late-season run with another 10-point contribution.  Daniel Sackey also had 10.

The Privateers survive to face Southeastern Louisiana in the semifinals on Friday night.
