Give Ron Hunter all the credit. Down 14 at the half, he completely outcoaches Isaac Brown in the second half. Great, great win on the road!!

They're going to have to google it and watch youtube videos to learn.

It can be learned quickly. Mardi Gras 2006 my buddy taught my 11-year-old daughter how to do it at parades, then was surprised when she boxed him out! Definitely a skill with parade bead groveling applications!

Back on topic, this was a very enjoyable second half, and I agree with Houma, Hunter deserves credit for this one. Enjoy the ride my friends and ROLL WAVE!

I think Hunter shocked the Shockers by coming out in man to man instead of his matchup zone in the second half. It really threw them off their game. Then, in the last couple of minutes, he went back to the zone.

Congrats coach hunter ! A big win that shows we may have a little something brewing at Tulane !

Also congrats Nobel Days- has spent 5 years at Tulane and does all the little things and dirty work. This guy deserves the game ball

Impressive win. Especially coming back like they did. We obviously have upgraded our talent.

Guys our hero deserves to have his name spelled correctly-it's Nobal.

This post-game quote is too funny/honest...

“I love Nobal Days,” Tulane coach Ron Hunter said. “He’s not even the best player in his own household. His mom was a better player. He’s probably the least athletic player I’ve had in 32 years, but I tell you what, he knows how to play.

Another solid conference win last night. It’s too bad we lost so many games that we should have won this season. The conference outside of Houston is extremely weak so we should be able to win every game but Houston. Hopefully Hunter is taking these kids out for steak instead of pizza for the post game celebration meal. His one liner on Days and his mom was hilarious. Roll Wave!

Be a Hero Today.... Adopt a Shelter Pet... The Beatles once sang "Can't Buy Me Love"... I disagree, unconditional Love can be bought, for the nominal adoption fee at your local Pet Shelter !

The league is weak again. Was barely a 2 bid league last year and could be a one bid league this year. Houston has lost two of their top players to season ending injuries. It's wide open.

If it’s not a corner we’re turning, then it has to at least be a bend in the road.

Nobal Days should be considered as a candidate for a graduate assistant. He may be lacking in scoring ability but he has a knowledge of the game and strategic understanding that would make him a potential future college-level coach.

Spot on. We’ve finally gotten breaks this year and fortunately have capitalized on them for the most part outside of ECU.

Was thinking that as well, Coach Hunter won that chess match…. Seems their Coach was struggling to have a 2nd inbounds play to call on that last play after the TO’s.

We need lots of U-turns in the Tulane athletic program.

It looks like a corner but might end up more of a roundabout.
