Recap: Southern Miss vs. Louisiana Tech

Hattiesburg, MS (SportsNetwork.com) - Daveon Boardingham scored a game-high 20 points as the Southern Miss Golden Eagles captured an 80-71 win over the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs in Conference USA action at Reed Green Coliseum.

Michael Craig registered a double-double for the Golden Eagles (16-3, 3-1 CUSA) with 17 points and a game-high 12 rebounds, followed by Neil Watson with 14 points as USM won for the seventh time in eight games.

The Bulldogs (15-4, 3-1) were led by Alex Hamilton with 19 points, but he shot just 4-of-13 from the floor and missed all six of his 3-point attempts. Cordarius Johnson accounted for 14 points, Chris Anderson 13 and Kenneth Smith 12 points to go along with nine assists as the squad saw a seven-game win streak come to an end.

A frenetic game in the first half, Southern Miss failed on all seven tries from 3-point range through the first 20 minutes, but countered with a near- perfect 19-of-21 at the free-throw line in order to take a 47-39 advantage into the break. The Bulldogs converted 7-of-17 on the perimeter in the period, but a mere 8-of-15 at the free-throw line.

In the second half the visitors connected on all six chances at the charity stripe, but instead they knocked down only 2-of-11 on the outside, preventing them from making a serious run at a comeback bid.

Not only did the Golden Eagles outscore Louisiana Tech at the charity stripe, 28-14, they also crushed the Bulldogs on the glass, 48-26.

Louisiana Tech was without leading scorer Raheem Appleby (16.1 ppg) who is scheduled to miss several weeks due to a sprained left ankle.

In another move that bucks tradition, the Sharks completely revamped their on- ice leadership structure not by selecting new players to wear the precious singular letters on their uniforms, but by stripping the captaincy from Joe Thornton, removing the alternate tag from Patrick Marleau and leaving the other "A" vacant after Dan Boyle signed as a free agent with the Rangers.
