Lineup changes. Team defense. A breakout performance.
All highlighted one of the best halves of basketball Western has pieced together in its 2-3 start to the season.
With Sergio Kerusch and Anthony Sally out of the starting lineup, Steffphon Pettigrew answered the bell. Pettigrew has 15 points to lead all scorers and added 5 rebounds to push Western to a 7-point halftime lead.
Kerusch tallied seven first-half minutes, Sally had six and Western held Tulane to 10-of-22 shooting while going 50 percent on field goals themselves.
