The Southern Miss Golden Eagles (3 – 4) fell under .500 for the first time this season with their loss against Florida State (8 – 1) on Dec. 5 in Tallahassee.

The Southern Miss men’s basketball team dropped their third straight game, losing to the Florida State Seminoles by a score of 98-49.

The Seminoles scored 98 points, which is the most points scored against the Golden Eagles this season – Tougaloo scored 96 points in the season opener. The Golden Eagles scored 49 points total against the Seminoles, a season low for USM.

“We just weren’t ready for them,” said Head Coach Doc Sadler. “We tried, but their pressure got to us, especially when they had such a hot shooting night.”

The Golden Eagles entered halftime trailing Florida State by a score of 48 – 26, with the Seminoles holding a lead for the entire first half.

In the first half, Southern Miss played dismally, only scoring seven points through the first 10 minutes. Overall, the team shot a combined 9-of-29 from the court in the half.

In the second half, the Golden Eagles were scoreless for a period of 4 minutes and 24 seconds, starting at the 9:28 mark in the second half and ending on a Kevin Holland layup with 5:04 left to play. The 14 points scored by Florida State helped secure the win for the Seminoles.

Southern Miss shot 30.2 percent from the field and made 5-of-28 three-point shots. Florida State was offensively efficient, shooting a combined 60 percent from the court in the contest. Florida State averages 85.9 points per game.

Only two Southern Miss players scored in double-digits: Forward Eddie Davis led USM with 17 points, and guard Cortez Edwards followed with 11 points.

The Golden Eagles will attempt to get back to .500 when they return to Reed Green Coliseum for their matchup against Tulane on Dec. 10 at 4:30 p.m.
