UNO Heading Home
The University of New Orleans men’s and women’s basketball teams will return to New Orleans soon. The men’s team is set to leave Dec. 26, and the women’s team, who has games scheduled in Tyler for the month of January, is set to leave Jan. 31.
“I have liked being in Tyler, because it is smaller and you know everyone. The gym has been nice to play in, and UT Tyler has really supported us,” said Sami Basawi, Spain freshman, who will leave with 9 hours credit from UT Tyler, along with the online classes he was taking at UNO.
“UT Tyler has been like a family to us. We have made life-long friends with the students at UT Tyler, and are grateful we had a place to come,” said Talishia Young, New Orleans freshman who will leave with 6 hours from UT Tyler.
The team’s came to UT Tyler in September after Hurricane Katrina damaged New Orleans and their campus.
