BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Derek Fountain scored 13 of his 15 points in the first half when LSU took off to a big lead and the Tigers defeated New Orleans 91-62 on Thursday night.

Fountain, a Mississippi State transfer, was 4 of 5 from the field and 6 of 6 at the line along with eight rebounds and seven of LSU’s 17 steals in only 17 minutes. Justice Hill scored in double figures for the third straight game with 12 points for LSU (3-0). Cam Hayes had 13 points.

Khaleb Wilson-Rouse led New Orleans (2-1) with a career-high 21 points with Tyson Jackson adding 14.

A couple of 3-pointers by Hill gave LSU the lead for good less than four minutes into the game. A 23-3 run put the Tigers ahead by 22 with five minutes left in the half, the same margin they had at halftime at 47-25. The Tigers made 13 of 16 free throws to the Privateers’ 1-of-5 and turned 15 turnovers into a 16-2 advantage in points off miscues in the first half.

After shooting 41% in the opening half the Tigers were 16 of 24 for 67% in the second half and built their largest lead of 34.

LSU has won 27 straight games over Louisiana schools.
