New Orleans beat Spring Hill 114-58 on Tuesday, but the biggest day of UNO’s season so far was on Wednesday when head coach Mark Slessinger joined the Mid-Major Madness podcast.

Slessinger talked the Privateers’ season-opening win and broke down who on his team you need to watch for and how they will be successful this season. Bryson Robinson is the name you should know off the bat as the preseason all-conference first-teamer had 22 points on Tuesday. We also have to give a special shout-out to Russ-sized guard Lamont Berzat, who handed out 11 assists.

We then dove into UNO’s rough road slate coming up, which includes a trip to Hinkle Fieldhouse on Saturday. That one probably won’t be another 56-point win for UNO, but the Privateers’ elite defense could keep the game closer then expected.

Slessinger also gave his thoughts on the state of the Southland and broke down his A+ dance moves, featured here:
