    NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Bo McCalebb scored 23 points and New Orleans hit six free throws in the final 15 seconds as the Privateers defeated Sun Belt Conference foe New Mexico State 74-71 Thursday night.

    Shawn Malloy had his second straight double-double with 11 points 16 rebounds. Chad Barnes added 14 points and Jamie McNeilly scored 11 for New Orleans (7-8, 2-0 Sun Belt).

    Josh Jenkins led the Aggies (4-11, 0-2) with 23 points and eight assists, while Duane John added 17 points and Mike Mitchell had 10.
