Dwayne Davis scored 12 points off the bench for Southern Miss (8-3), which has now won two games in a row after a three game losing slump. Jonathan Mills pulled down a game-high nine rebounds.

For Georgia State (5-6), R.J. Hunter led all scorers with 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting from the floor including six 3-pointers. Manny Atkins had five assists and four rebounds while he and Devonta White added 13 points each in the second consecutive loss for the Panthers.

After two free throws by White tied the game back up, Brooks hit a 3-pointer to put Southern Miss back on top for good as the Eagles held on for the victory.
