NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Tulane's women's basketball team was crowned champion, Sunday, after holding on to beat UTSA, 75-66, in their own tournament. Kolby Morgan led with a season-high 22 points while Meredith Schulte shined with her first career double-double, netting 10 points and 10 rebounds. San Antonio-native Leslie Vorpahl also finished in double figures, tacking on 15 points in front of her home crowd.

“I thought our bench did a great job,” Tulane head coach Lisa Stockton said. “It was very timely. When Caylah went in, she got some steals and to the free-throw line, and that was key. In those last five minutes, we had some really young players on the floor and I thought they did a super job of finishing this game.”

The Green Wave return to action, Wednesday night, hosting McNeese State.

    Today's work was much lighter between the Saints and Chargers was much lighter. They wore no pads only shells and helmets, and they only practiced two hours instead of two and a half like Thursday. While they certainly weren't perfect, overall the Saints had much better execution today than Thursday.  "I thought overall it was a little bit crisper today than yesterday.
