UNO Hits 100 Again in Rout Over SUNO

In New Orleans' last tune-up before they begin the road portion of their pre-conference schedule, the Privateers rolled over outgunned SUNO 106-69 at Lakefront Arena on Homecoming Day.

With the likes of Tim Floyd, Tic Price, Ron Maestri, Bo McCalebb, and a host of ex-players from the days of yore watching on, UNO struggled early but quickly gained its footing.  With the game tied at 20, the Privateers (2-0) launched into a 21-5 run, aided by two Jordan Johnson three-pointers, to remove any doubt.

Johnson led the way for UNO with 21 points, including three from downtown.  Jah Short, a true freshman in just his second collegiate game, posted a double-double with 14 points and 13 rebounds.  Turk Vincent added 13 points and James Glisson 11.  Johnson also led New Orleans with 8 assists and 4 steals.

The competition gets much tougher next weekend as UNO travels to Chicago to take on the Loyola Ramblers in the first of a five-game road trip.
