Celts Defeat University of New Orleans Privateers
The University of St. Thomas Celts men’s basketball team finally had a chance to hit the court again after the icy winter storm that postponed the game against the University of New Orleans Privateers. The Privateers came to town sporting a seven-game win streak but left with a 59-55 loss to the Celts.

Both teams struggled to gain momentum during the first half. Strong defense caused turnovers and poor shooting percentages on both sides. Celts guard, Jeremy Lewis, got the team going with three three-pointers in the first half. The Celts held the Privateers to 19 points in the first half and headed to the locker room with an eight point lead, 27-19.

The second half was a back-and-forth game with neither team leading by more then a nine points. The Celts’ strong defense continued into the second half. They out-rebounded the Privateers 36-31 and caused 15 turnovers with 9 steals. Anthony Medina and Travis Lampley each had six rebounds.

With the Celts holding onto a slim two-point lead later, Lampley hit two free throws with 15 seconds left and Anthony Medina closed the game with two more. Jeremy Lewis led the team in scoring with a game high 22 points. Anthony Medina chipped in 12.

The Celts pushed their record back to the .500 mark at 10-10. The Celts hit the road Saturday, Feb. 12 to play the University of Dallas at 3 p.m. and then at Southwestern Assemblies of God at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 17.
