Men's Basketball Hangs on for 68-65 Win Over Southern
Josh Davis, Jordan Callahan and Ricky Tarrant combined to score 52 of the Tulane men's basketball team's 68 points as the Green Wave hung on to defeat visiting Southern, 68-65, on Saturday night in Devlin Fieldhouse.
"Southern was an NCAA Tournament team a year ago and has several returning guys," Tulane head coach Ed Conroy said. "They are a very well coached team and this will be a tough challenge, but we are looking forward to it and we will be ready to go."
Junior Jay Hook leads Tulane after his 24-point, 11-rebound performance against NJIT on Friday, while fellow junior and Baton Rouge native, Tre Drye also posted a double-double with 14 points and 15 rebounds. Freshman Jonathan Stark added 11 points and seven assists in his debut.
