20 Losses Again: UNO Falls to SLU

Tyson Jackson
For the second consecutive season, the Privateers have lost 20 games, hitting that mark once again with a 77-67 loss in Hammond to Southeastern Louisiana.

New Orleans started strong, opening a 16-6 lead before falling apart. The Lions outscored the Bucs 37-9 for the remainder of the half, and while the Privateers (8-20, 3-12) fought back in the second frame, it wasn't enough to climb out of such a deep hole.

Jordan Johnson led the way with 22 points, though he shot just 6-for-19. Tyson Jackson had a strong effort, notching 17 points and 8 rebounds.

UNO has a week off before traveling to San Antonio next Saturday to face Incarnate Word.
