Eagles clobber William Carey 99-54

We finally got the blowout win that I've been waiting for this year, and even though it was against an NAIA opponent, I was pretty happy with our performance today. 12 different players scored today (6 players were in double-digits). Matt Bingaya and Chip Armelin saw significant minutes and played well. Bingaya had 16 points and 4 rebounds while Armelin also scored 16 points and added 3 rebounds. USM shot 64.1% from the field overall (first time since the UAB home game last year that we've shot better than 60% from the field). Next up for the Eagles is Louisville (on the road) who lost their first game of the season against UNC today.

Oh, and this happened. (via the Southern Miss Athletics YouTube page, it won't embed on this site for some reason)

Other notes from C-USA and CBB today

Charlotte got a HUGE win over top 15 Michigan today in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off Classic Championship game. The 49ers are now 5-1 with wins over Kansas State and Michigan. Their only loss came to College of Charleston on the road (by 1 point).

UAB was blown out by Temple in the Charleston Classic by a score of 89-68. A pretty disappointing loss as this Temple team isn't really all that great this year.

North Dakota State lost pretty badly to in-state rival North Dakota today. Remember that NDSU was the pre-season favorite in the Summit League.

Louisville lost to UNC which really shocked me because the Tar Heels haven't looked strong in the early part of 2013. That being said, beating Louisville on the road this week will be a extremely tough task. The Cards should still finish in the top 10 by year's end.
