UNO Rally Falls Short at USF

Jordan Johnson
San Francisco held off a strong New Orleans rally to beat the Privateers on their home court, 85-72.

The Privateers (4-6) trailed by as many as 21 points in the first half and were down 44-27 at the break.  But a rally fueled primarily by Jordan Johnson and Tyson Jackson brought UNO to within three at 68-65. But the Dons regained control, grabbing some key offensive rebounds down the stretch, and won going away.

Johnson led the Privateers with 28 points.  Jackson added 18 as well as tying for a team-high 5 rebounds.

UNO returns home on Thursday to face Division III Birmingham Southern.
