Porous Defense Dooms UNO in Stillwater

Senior Tyson Jackson
The Privateers hung tough for much of the night, but soft defense and foul trouble eventually buried them in a 96-68 loss at Oklahoma State.

New Orleans (2-2) trailed by just six at the half, and were within 65-60 of the Cowboys deep into the second half when they surrendered a 22-0 run.

Jordan Johnson again led UNO with 23 points, and Tyson Jackson added 15.  No one else hit double figures.  James Glisson III fouled out, and four other Privateers had four fouls.

UNO heads to Conway, Arkansas this weekend to participate in a two-day holiday round robin against North Dakota and host Central Arkansas.
