What to Know
The Southern Miss Golden Eagles’ road trip will continue as they head to Don Haskins Center at 9 p.m. ET Saturday to face off against the Texas-El Paso Miners. The teams split their matchups last year, with the Golden Eagles winning the first 74-66 at home on the road and Texas-El Paso taking the second 77-62.
Southern Miss escaped with a win on Thursday against the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners by the margin of a single free throw, 74-73. It took seven tries, but Southern Miss can finally say that they have a victory on the road. Four players on Southern Miss scored in the double digits: guard Jaron Pierre Jr. (18), guard Rashad Bolden (17), forward Tyler Stevenson (14), and forward Isaih Moore (10).
Meanwhile, Texas-El Paso lost to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at home by a decisive 64-52 margin. One thing holding the Miners back was the mediocre play of guard Souley Boum, who did not have his best game: he played for 39 minutes but put up just eight points on 3-for-12 shooting.
The Golden Eagles are expected to lose this next one by 9.5. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn’t have high expectations for them since the team is 2-7 ATS when expected to lose.
Southern Miss is now 5-8 while Texas-El Paso sits at 7-7. Southern Miss is 2-2 after wins this year, and Texas-El Paso is 3-3 after losses.
