Men's Basketball Game Day: New Orleans

After this, the Wildcats will re-sume play in the Joe Cipriano Nebraska Classic, which, of course, takes the Wildcats to Louisiana, Ohio, Indiana and not once to the Cornhusker state. B-CU plays at Kent State Tuesday.
B-CU UPDATE: The Wildcats have lost both contests of the 2012-2013 season by identical 65-55 scores. What's more: B-CU has been outscored 66-56 in first halves and 64-54 in second halves. Against Tulane, three players had career highs: Mikel Trapp (12 points), Ricky Johnson (6 rebounds) and Alex Smith (8 rebounds).

Through two contests, Privateer opponents are averaging 24 turnovers a game.
