WGNO Sports Director Ed Daniels’ EDitorial for Wednesday, January 9, 2013.

It was the perfect night for the Tulane basketball fans to show up and make a difference.

The Wave was riding a five game winning streak and was 10 and 0 at home this season.  Tulane was playing its conference home opener.

Often during the year, I am asked by Tulane fans why Tulane doesn’t get the coverage it deserves.  My question to you:  Where were you tonight?  No excuses, please.  Was it a school night?  Too foggy outside?  You already had too much king cake and couldn’t make it?

The lack of fans in the stands tonight was downright embarrassing.  Thank goodness for the Helen Cox Band and a group of Marquette students making their yearly sojourn to the Crescent City.

Kudos to those who showed, the several hundred that did.

Those who didn’t, please do not send me emails or harassing phone calls.  Your absence tonight told me all I need to know.
