Southern Miss stats pack
All you ever wanted to know statistically about the undefeated Golden Eagles from Hattiesburg.
USM stats pack
A couple of things about them you might not know:
1) They've played a cupcake schedule. They haven't been tested. Even Dukie V commented on this.
2) Larry Eustachy is their HC. You know him from Iowa State as the guy that lost as a 2 seed in the 1st round to Hampton. You also know him from his post game parties at rival school's fraternities and student apartments. I think he's turned his life around so good luck to him after this game.
Not a whole lot you can pull from their stats being the weak schedule they've played.
Almost 50% FG, 35% 3pt FG, 61% FT (AUful), and their rebound margin is +15.4 per game.
I have not seen them play (and unless you're an avid USM fan you probably haven't either)... all I could guess is Wise is their best player and biggest threat beyond the arc (which we still have problems defending under CMG). Hendrix should have his way inside as I don't think Dotson can cover him. FEED THE BALL INSIDE TO JD AND RH!!!
Prediction... Alabama in a close one by 7. TV coverage on CSS at 8:30PM EST (7:30PM CST)
