(WVUE) -

Cameron Reynolds scored 23 of a career-high 31 points in the first half as the Tulane men’s basketball team defeated Tulsa, 81-69, in American Athletic Conference action on Senior Day in its regular-season finale Sunday afternoon.

Tulane (6-24, 3-15 AAC), which locked up the No. 10 seed on Wednesday night, will travel to Hartford, Conn., to compete in the 2017 American Athletic Conference Championship and will face No. 7 seed Tulsa (14-16, 8-10 AAC) for a third time this season on Thursday.

Reynolds made eight field goals, including seven three-pointers, while making all eight free throw attempts. His seven treys were a personal-best and tied for the second most in a single game in program history. The Pearland, Texas native became the first Tulane player with 30 points in a game since Louis Dabney scored 32 in a triple-overtime victory at East Carolina on Feb. 10, 2016.

“I felt great,” Reynolds said. “Malik (Morgan) and I get shots up every day after practice, so it was really about getting great looks. Malik found me in spots, Melvin (Frazier) found me in spots, I have to give the credit to them because they found me.”

Frazier recorded 18 points and four steals, as Morgan scored 15 points to go with six rebounds, eight assists and a pair of steals in his final home game.
