USM takes a hit from Memphis (Assignment 1)

leave a comment »

Saturday afternoon, February 9th 7,864 people gathered in  Southern Miss’s Coliseum for the highly anticipated “whiteout” game (everyone wore white) against the Memphis Tigers. With a extended weekend ahead of the student body, they joined to watch as our Men’s Basketball team took on Memphis. This game was built up on so much positive energy after USM beat Memphis last season for the first time in over a decade. But all good things most come to an end, and the significance of last season’s win was surely over-thrown by this loss. The Golden Eagles loss with a final score of 89-76. This makes for their 6th loss of the season standing currently at 19-6 statistic (After winning Tulane on Feb. 13th). Even though Memphis did not travel to Hattiesburg, MS to play coy, shooting at 56 percent from the field, Southern Miss showed tremendous fight lead by Senior Dwayne Davis, putting up 25 points alone. With a roster like ours and that same fight, communication, and skill that the team identifies, they are undoubtedly not letting a lose like this slow them down.
