Southern Mississippi struggled early and trailed by 10 points late in the first half en route to a season-low 21 points in the first half.

They finally took their first lead of the game with 8:15 remaining on a layup by Neil Watson, contributing to an 11-2 run that gave Southern Miss a 47-40 advantage.
 
The Golden Eagles stretched the lead to 11 points moments later and held off a late charge by Arizona State for the win.
