NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Despite shooting an icy 32 percent from the field, the University of New Orleans Privateers (3-3) relied on tough defense and clutch free throw shooting to earn a hard-fought win over Texas Southern University, 63-57, Wednesday at Lakefront Arena.

The win over the Tigers (4-2) from the Southwestern Athletic Conference, was important and significant.

“It’s a great win because it puts us at .500 and it gives us a winning streak,” beamed head coach Keeshawn Davenport.

The last time UNO was at the .500 mark was December of 2015 after back-to-back wins over Trinity Baptist and Jackson State ran the Privateers record to 3-3.

UNO will face Iowa State on the road, Sunday, Dec. 4, before returning home on Monday, Dec. 12, to host Trinity Baptist.
