Final Stats

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The University of Southern Mississippi used an 11-0 run in the second half to break open a close game and defeat the University of Houston men's basketball team, 70-48, in Hattiesburg on Wednesday, February 18.

The game began with the Cougars jumping out to a 10-3 lead with 15:00 minutes to play in the first half. But, Houston turned the ball over on seven straight possessions and Southern Miss took advantage.

The Golden Eagles went on an 11-2 run to take a 14-12 lead with 7:41 left in the opening period. Jasper Johnson came off the Southern Miss bench to score seven of his game-high 16 points in the opening period as the Golden Eagles held 31-23 lead at the intermission.

Houston fought back early in the second half as the Cougars closed to within six points, 40-34, with 13:58 left to play. But Houston couldn't make a shot on their next nine possessions.

Southern Miss opened up a 51-34 lead before Lanny Smith scored a lay-up off a steal with 6:24 left to play.

Marcus Oliver continued the rally with lay-ups on Houston's next three possessions to help the Cougars close to within 55-42. But, that is as close as the Cougars would get.

Jarekus Singleton made four straight free throws after he was fouled first on an offensive rebound and second while stealing the ball away from Smith.

On Houston's next possession, Andre Owens missed a jumper from the left wing, and Singleton found Johnson for a jumper to put the Golden Eagles up, 62-42.

Southern Miss coasted the rest of the way. Besides Johnson's 16 points, Singleton scored 15 points, David Haywood added 11 and Greg Johnson finished with 10 for the Golden Eagles.

Oliver led the Cougars with 15 points and Smith finished with 13, but no one else scored in double figures as Anwar Ferguson had eight points and eight rebounds, and Houston's scoring leader, Owens, was held to five points.

 

 

The loss drops Houston's record to 8-15, and the Cougars are 2-10 in C-USA play. The Cougars return home to play USF on Saturday, February 21 before playing TCU February 28 in Fort Worth.
