Black and Gold fans may be experiencing a little de'ja vu.

Last season in Head Coach Donnie Tyndall's first year at the helm, the Golden Eagles started 6-0.

This time around? You guessed it. 6-0.

The Golden Eagles face a tough test Friday when they travel to face the defending national champions, the 9th ranked Louisville Cardinals.

Southern Miss goes into the game scoring 74 points per contest while Rick Pitino and his bunch average just under 85 per game.

Tyndall knows it's going to be a tough challenge and even with a perfect record, there is some room for improvement for his team.

"You're gonna win games against quality completion by defending and rebounding. Our rebounding margin this year compared to a year ago, six games in isn't as good," Tyndall said after the team's 99-54 win against William Carey.

"So, we have to work and continue to emphasize block outs. We're giving up too many offensive rebounds."

Tip-off against Louisville is set for 6 p.m.
