NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Jeff Early obliterated his previous career best with 27 points as the Salukis took a 72-55 victory from New Orleans Monday night in a nonconference affair.

Early, whose previous high was 18 points, made 11 of 16 shots and pulled down 12 rebounds - also a career high.

Desmar Jackson joined Early in double figures with 17 points.

The win was the first for new Southern Illinois coach Barry Hinson.

The Salukis (1-0) opened on an 11-0 scoring run, and led 26-6 nine minutes in.
