UNO Opens SLC Tourney With Win

The Privateers continued their roll in the first round of the Southland Tournament in Lake Charles, downing Houston Christian 90-69.

New Orleans broke open a close game early, taking a 41-33 lead into the break.  Jordan Johnson's 29 points, including five three-pointers, powered his team to a comfortable lead in the second half that turned into a laugher down the stretch.

Turk Vincent, back from a minor injury, posted a double-double with 10 points and a whopping 14 rebounds.  Tyson Jackson contributed 14 points as well.

UNO will take on Southeastern Louisiana in the quarterfinals tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m.
