Nov 28, 2006 - 9:00 AM NEW ORLEANS(Ticker) -- Sylvia Fowles continues to pile up the double-doubles.

Fowles scored 17 points and pulled down 13 rebounds to lead ninth-ranked LSU to a 65-45 victory over New Orleans.

It was the 39th career double-double for Fowles, a 6-6 junior center who went over 1,000 points earlier in the season.
