NASSAU, Bahamas - Southern Miss came back from a six-point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter to defeat the Street Legends All-Stars, 74-65, in the first game of the Bahamas trip.

Daveon Boardingham led the way with a double-double, scoring a game-high 17 points while pulling down 14 rebounds. Aaron Brown added 14 points.

"It was a hard fought game," said Southern Miss head coach Donnie Tyndall. "The Street Legends All-Stars played hard. They're a scrappy group. They played 40 minutes of zone, which we haven't worked a lot on to this point, so it was a good experience in that regard. I was pleased with Matt Bingaya. I thought he came in and did some things in the second half. We certainly have to do a better job controlling the ball."

The Golden Eagles trailed 55-49 at the start of the fourth quarter. They then went on a 12-2 run to take a 61-57 lead, their first lead since the second quarter. After the Street Legends tied it at 61, Boardingham hit two free throws, Neil Watson hit a three-pointer to make it 66-61. The Street Legends cut it to four points, but would get no closer.

Watson scored nine points and had a game-high five assists and Norville Carey added eight points and seven rebounds. Chip Armelin also had eight points.

Matt Bingaya had a solid game despite playing just 12 minutes, scoring six points, pulling down five rebounds and adding two steals.

The game was played under international rules, with four 10 minutes quarters.
