Feb. 19, 2007

Final Stats

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) -Courtney Beasley and Jeremy Wise scored 22 points apiece as Southern Miss beat Houston 74-69 on Monday night in a Conference USA game that was critical for the Golden Eagles' postseason chances.

Southern Miss (17-8, 7-5) is already assured of its first winning season in six years. The win was the Golden Eagles' 14th at home, a new record in the 42-year history of Green Coliseum, and one shy of the school record set in 1951-52.

The Cougars (14-12, 8-4) have lost two of their last three games. Oliver Lafayette scored a career-high 30 points in the loss for Houston.

With his first basket of the game, Wise set a freshman scoring record for most points in a season by a first-year player. He now has 426 points.

Wise sealed the game with a steal and a lay-up and added two key free throws in the final 40 seconds.

After trailing 30-22 at halftime, Houston cut the deficit to one twice in the second half. The last time came with six minutes to play, but the Cougars never pulled even.

Craig Craft added 11 points for Southern Miss, while Jahmar Thorpe added 14 for Houston and Dion Dowell added 11 points and eight rebounds.
