NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Daniel Puckett scored 22 points to lead Tulane past Tulsa 76-75 on Wednesday night.

Ben Uzoh's jumper with 2:46 remaining in the game tied the score at 70, but Robinson Louisme's jumper regained the lead for the Green Wave (8-10, 2-3 Conference USA) with 2:13 left on the game clock.

Tulsa (12-7, 2-2) had one final chance at the end of the game, trailing 76-73. But Ray Reese's 3-point attempt with 2 seconds left was off target, and Justin Hurtt's layup at the buzzer wasn't enough for Tulsa.

Louisme scored 13 points for the Green Wave.
