All those chilly numbers came despite eight offensive rebounds and seven second-chance points. Southern Mississippi's numbers told an equally devastating tale for the Herd.
The Golden Eagles went 11 of 17 from the floor in the second half, with 10 assists on those baskets. Watson's winning 3-pointer was one of three he hit, and part of the team's 6-of-9 effort.
With that, the Eagles won their 20th game and sent the Herd one step closer to its 20th loss. Marshall must finish 5-2 to avoid that ignominious fate, and the first step begins today.
