Southern Miss tops Memphis in Conference tournament

TULSA, OK (WDAM) -

It took her team three tries, but Joy Lee McNelis's Lady Eagles finally topped the University of Memphis in 2013, and they did it with a 67-58 win in the first round of the Conference USA tournament.

Jamierra Faulkner lead the way with 28 points and six assists in the win, while All-Conference Freshman Jerontay Clemons added 19 points and nine boards, helping the team come back from an 11-point first half deficit.

With 1:36 left to go until the half, Lauren McGraw put the Tigers up by 11, but a Clemons fast-break layup with 6:00 minutes left capped a 16-0 run that gave the Eagles a 53-42 lead. The Black and Gold never looked back after that.

The University of Southern Mississippi will meet East Carolina University for round two of the tournament on Thursday at 7:30 pm.
