HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Southern Miss men's basketball has dealt with some interesting scenario's all season, but Thursday night might have been the strangest. The Golden Eagles (6-17) were forced to play the final 42 seconds with only
players on the court.
Freshman forward Michael O'Donnell fouled out with 6:30 left in the second half and former walk-on junior guard Jamie Chapman picked up his fifth infraction with 26 seconds left in regulation.
Seven players were available for USM to start the game against FIU (12-12) and after sophomore forward Matt Bingaya picked up his fifth personal foul in overtime, the Eagles were left with Keljin Blevins, Kevin Holland, Chip Armelin and Shadell Millinghaus to finish the game.
