NEW ORLEANS (AP)—New Orleans guard Bo McCalebb scored 22 points, including his 2000th career point, and freshman reserve Jaroslav Tyrna contributed 13 as the Privateers held off Lamar 76-65 on Wednesday.

Kenny Dawkins paced Lamar (1-4) with 18 points, while Justin Nabors added 14 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.

The Privateers, who were up 38-28 at halftime, went on a 10-0 run at the 16:36 mark of the second half to stretch their lead to 54-34 with 14:42 to play. The Cardinals managed to cut the deficit to 67-60 with 3:20 to go following a free throw by Lamar Sanders. But Tyrna iced it with a key 3-pointer with 2:55 left to push the margin to 70-60.
