NEW ORLEANS (AP)—Ricky Tarrant made 11 of 14 free-throw attempts en route to a game-high 21 points as Tulane downed Bethune-Cookman 65-55 Tuesday night in a nonconference affair.

The Wildcats clawed back to make it 37-35 early in the second half, but after both teams went scoreless for nearly 2 minutes, Trevante Drye tossed in a dunk and Jordan Callahan drained a 3-pointer for Tulane to re-expand the lead for good.

Tulane connected on 28 of 35 free throws as Bethune-Cookman committed 29 personal fouls, with 11 different players earning violations—10 with two or more.
