New Orleans Team Preview

The New Orleans Privateers come into the conference tournament as the 8-seed, finishing the year at 9-22 overall, including a 4-14 mark in conference play. Jordan Johnson leads the Privateers in scoring and assists with 21.4 PPG and 3.9 APG along with 3.2 RPG while Khaleb Wilson-Rouse has 10.4 PPG as the only other double-digit scorer for New Orleans up to this point in the year.

Nick Caldwell leads the Lions in scoring with 15.5 PPG along with 5.5 RPG while Roger McFarlane has 14.7 PPG with a team-high 8.6 RPG to lead the Lions on the glass and to cap off the pair of double-digit scorers for Southeastern Louisiana so far this season. Alec Woodard has 9.1 PPG with 3.5 RPG and Roscoe Eastmond has 7.8 PPG with a team-high 6.5 APG as well this season.

New Orleans vs. Southeastern Louisiana Prediction

I’m on Southeastern Louisiana here. The Privateers were lucky to make the conference tournament by virtue of a tiebreaker, but the reality here is the Privateers had one of the worst defenses in the Southland this season. Southeastern Louisiana’s the better and more consistent team by a fair margin and I think the Lions take care of business to move on in the tournament. I’ll lay the points with Southeastern Louisiana here.
