NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Ricky Tarrant scored 33 points and Tulane exploded in the second half for 63 points to beat SMU 80-74 Wednesday night in Conference USA action.

Tarrant broke the school record for points by a freshman, set by Anthony Reed with 32 in 1989. Tulane’s 63 points in the second half was more than the Green Wave’s total in nine games this season.

Trailing 25-17 at halftime and 28-19 early in the second half, Tulane (14-6, 2-4) outscored SMU 61-46 over the final 18:37. Tarrant scored 26 of his points in the second half, including his five 3-pointers. He was 9 for 17 from the floor, 5 of 11 from the arc and 10 for 12 at the foul line.

SMU (10-10, 2-4) got 26 points from Robert Nyakundi, 16 from London Giles.

For Tulane, Jordan Callahan scored 16 points, Josh Davis 14. Tulane shot 18 for 28 after intermission.
