NASSAU, Bahamas - Southern Miss took control of the game early and never looked back, dominating the New Providence All-Stars, 119-85. The Golden Eagles are now 3-0 in the Bahamas.
"I thought we shared the ball well offensively," said head coach Donnie Tyndall. "We had good ball movement. (The New Providence All-Stars) tried to pressure us and for the most part, we handled the ball pretty well. Guys played very unselfishly, which I was pleased with. Again, though, we're fouling too much. We're putting teams at the line at too high of a clip. But, we'll watch the tape, get better, and try again tomorrow."
Southern Miss placed six players in double-figures, led by Aaron Brown's second straight double-double, as he scored 31 points and grabbed 14 rebounds. He also had five assists and four steals.
Norville Carey had one of his best games, scoring 27 points and pulling down nine rebounds, while recording four steals. Jerrold Brooks scored 17 points and had nine assists. He also had three rebounds.
Daveon Boardingham had a solid game, scoring 16 points and grabbing seven rebounds, while recording three assists, two steals and two blocks. Chip Armelin had 12 points and five rebounds.
Matt Bingaya also had a good game off the bench. Bingaya scored 10 points and grabbed eight rebounds while recording two assists and two steals.
Southern Miss returns to the court tomorrow when it faces the Commonwealth Giants at 3 p.m. CT.
