Southern Miss Doubleheader to Cap Off 2017-2018 Season
HATTIESBURG, Miss. – The Southern Miss women’s basketball will be in action at Reed Green Coliseum tomorrow afternoon to cap off the 2017-2018 regular season. The women see FIU at 2 p.m. and the men’s team will face LA Tech at 4:30 p.m.
The Lady Eagles (15-13, 7-8), fresh off toppling conference foe WKU, have clinched a spot in the Conference USA Tournament and can improve its seeding with a win over FIU (7-21, 4-11).
Southern Miss is 7-2 against the Panthers all-time and currently owns a 4-0 streak in the series. FIU last beat the Lady Eagles during the 1998-1999 season when the Panthers came to Hattiesburg for a non-conference meeting.
FIU boasts two of C-USA’s top-20 scorers, Kristian Hudson and Kiandre’a Pound. The duo averages 14.5 points per game and 12.9 points per game, individually. Southern Miss’ defense will need to step up again to walk away with a win. The Lady Eagles held WKU to .343 percent from the floor, the second lowest of any C-USA team faced this season.
