Southern Miss destroys Dillard 135-41, breaks five school records

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

There may not be any such thing as the perfect game, but the University of Southern Mississippi's men's basketball team came pretty close to perfection Thursday night against Dillard.

Aside from shooting over 56 percent from the field, 50 percent from three and only missing one free throw, the Golden Eagles (11-4) broke five school records and tied three others in pounding NAIA opponent Dillard 135-41.

Junior guard Neil Watson broke the school record for assists in a game, dishing out the rock 17 times. The team recorded 27 steals, 18 three pointers, lead by 45 at the half, and won by 95...all new school records. Southern Miss tied the record for most assists in a game with 40, for most turnovers forced with 36 and beat their 28th straight non-conference opponent at home.

Every player wearing a black and gold uniform registered playing time, and every one of them put something in the stat book. "It's always good when you have a win and a bunch of guys make shots kind of get your confidence level up a little bit," said Southern Miss head coach Donnie Tyndall afterward.

In his fourth start, junior forward Daveon Boardingham scored 22 points on ten of 11 shooting in only 19 minutes, while junior guard Cedric Jenkins also logged 22 points on eight of 16, and six of 12 from three point land.

The team will have to wait until fall of 2013 to break the record for consecutive home wins against a non-conference opponent, because its now full-speed ahead into Conference USA starting Wednesday Jan. 9 at Rice. "Heading into league play we had a good non-conference (record at) 11-4. We're excited about that, but obviously conference play in any league you play in is what really matters," said Tyndall.
