Tulane tops Southern at home


Tulane put together one of its best offensive performances of the season Wednesday night in beating Southern University, 84-75.

The Green Wave shot 50-percent from the floor, with four players scoring in double figures, in snapping their six-game skid. Cameron Reynolds led the way in scoring for the Wave with a personal best 24-points.

“Obviously a really good game, from our standpoint, of what we’ve been trying to preach all year long: defend and rebound,” head coach Mike Dunleavy, Sr. said. “We were plus-12 on the boards, we did a great job defensively - particularly (Melvin) Frazier on (Shawn) Prudhomme. Our other guys did a nice job defensively, locking guys down, and contesting shots.”

Tulane (2-7) will play its final non-conference road game on Saturday, Dec. 10 when it travels to Hattiesburg, Miss., to take on Southern Miss.
