Lions Outgun Privateers

In a shootout where both teams shot over 50% and combined for 22 threes, Southeastern Louisiana's explosive second half overcame the visiting Privateers, 92-87.

SLU scored 60 points in the second frame to erase a nine-point halftime deficit.  They shot 63% in the last 20 minutes and got into the lane at will, overcoming a Privateer offense led by Jordan Johnson's 27 points and seven three pointers.  Simeon Kirkland added 16 points and 11 rebounds for another double double for New Orleans (6-13, 3-5).  Each team had four scorers in double digits.

A rematch will take place on Saturday afternoon at Lakefront Arena.
