NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Jordan Callahan and Ricky Tarrant each had 16 points as Tulane trumped Nicholls State 65-48 Tuesday night in a nonconference game.

Callahan added four steals while Tarrant had five assists. Josh Davis had 11 points and eight rebounds for the Green Wave (7-2).

Freshman T.J. Carpenter notched a career-high 15 points for the Colonels (1-4).

Nicholls State was without Fred Hunter (hamstring strain) and Lachlan Prest (concussion) for the second straight game.

Callahan hit a 3 then Davis made a dunk and two free throws to put Tulane up 37-24 after the break. Nicholls State never pulled closer than eight after that.
