Southern Miss beats Morehead State 74-60

**Note: shortened recap because I'm on my phone. My apologies**

USM got a solid home win against Morehead State at Reed Green Coliseum tonight. MSU struggled at times with our full-court press and they ended up with 24 turnovers as a result. So, a pretty solid effort from our defense tonight. Neither team shot that well but USM was able to make 21 of 31 free throws compared to Morehead making 14 of 29 free throws. Neil Watson lead the Golden Eagles in scoring with 19 points (he made three 3-pointers). Morehead was able to out-rebound the Golden Eagles 38-26 but USM was able to overcome that stat for an impressive 14 point win. Next up for USM is a home game against Georgia State on Saturday.

CBB/CUSA notes from Tuesday

Pretty rough 2 days for CUSA. Tonight Charlotte lost at home to Davidson (who is not as good as they usually are) and Louisiana Tech lost to UL-Lafayette in Ruston. Bad losses for teams that are supposed to be compete for a CUSA title.

MTSU lost by double-digits to Belmont at home yesterday. Belmont is good but it was a solid opportunity for MTSU to get a top 75 OOC win.

North Texas was blown out by BYU (30 point loss) in Provo, yesterday.

FIU now holds the worst loss for CUSA in OOC play. They lost yesterday to D2 Nova Southeastern by 18 points.

FAU (who I thought was the worst team in CUSA along with UTSA) won against UCF at home yesterday by 11. Pretty big upset.

UNC beat #1 Michigan State on the road tonight. UAB beat the Tar Heels on Sunday.
