    NEW ORLEANS -- Josh Davis scored 22 points and Tulane pulled away from Rice in the second half Saturday for a 73-66 Conference USA victory.

    Tied at 32 at the half, the Owls moved ahead on Seth Gearhart's three-point play before the Green Wave (14-6, 2-3) took control with a 9-0 spurt.

    After Julian DeBose's layup got Rice back within four, at 41-37, Ricky Tarrant made two free throws and Tulane maintained a cushion of at least six points from there.

    The win gave the Green Wave a 25-24 lead in the series and snapped Rice's three-game streak, including a sweep last season.

    Davis had nine rebounds, ending his run of three straight double-doubles, as Tulane outrebounded the Owls 38-21.

    Tarrant added 16 points and Jordan Callahan scored 10 for the Green Wave.

    Gearhart scored 23 points to lead the Owls (4-15, 0-5), who have lost eight of their past nine games.
