Recap: Southern Miss vs. East Carolina

Memphis, TN (Sports Network) - Darnell Dodson hit the go-ahead three-pointer with just under a minute to play in overtime, and Southern Miss survived East Carolina, 81-78, in a Conference USA Tournament quarterfinal.

Neil Watson paced the second-seeded Golden Eagles (25-7) with 17 points, Jonathan Mills finished with 16 points and eight rebounds and Dodson contributed 13 points in total.

Southern Miss will play Marshall in a Friday semifinal.

Miguel Paul had a career-high 28 points and dished out 12 assists but the 10th-seeded Pirates (15-16) came up short. Maurice Kemp donated 18 points before fouling out with 1:49 remaining in overtime.

Robert Sampson netted a trey, one of 15 makes from beyond the arc for ECU, with 15.6 seconds remaining in regulation to force the extra session, but Paris Campbell's potential game-tying three-point attempt fell short in the final seconds of OT.

The teams exchanged the lead five times in the first four minutes of overtime with neither leading by more than two in that span before Dodson drained his decisive second trey of the contest.

USM increased its advantage to five on free throws by Darnell and Watson, but ECU made it interesting late, as a layup by Sampson cut its deficit to three and two missed attempts from the charity stripe by Watson gave the Pirates the ball in a one-possession game.

Campbell's contested try fell well short, however, and the Eagles escaped.
