Instant Reaction: Southern Miss beats North Dakota State 70-69

Brief Summary

Southern Miss got a huge road win over a good North Dakota State Bison team in Fargo, ND on Monday night. Aaron Brown led the Eagles with 18 points. The Bison jumped out to a lead early but the Eagles stormed back and went on a 16-0 run to take a 11 point lead at the half. Late in the game, Neil Watson nailed a 3 pointer to give USM a 70-66 lead. NDSU had a chance to win at the end but Watson got a clutch steal as time expired to seal the win.

Other notes from the game and from around college basketball.

Transfer Jeremiah Eason had a huge impact in this game with 15 points and 5 rebounds. By far, his best game of the year.

Several of USM's opponents on this year's schedule won tonight: Drexel beat Elon, MTSU beat UA-Little Rock, FIU beat Stetson, and Georgia State beat McNeese State.

However, there was one awful loss by a CUSA opponent and one that is currently pending. UTSA lost to non-D1 McMurray and ECU is currently being blown out by Norfolk State.

USM's next game is against South Alabama on Friday in Mobile. The Jags beat William Carey 76-53 tonight.

Late edit: ECU came back to beat Norfolk State. So ignore my note on their game.
