USM Press Release

Saturday marks the final home contest for Southern Miss men’s basketball players Kourtlin Jackson (Des Moines, Iowa) and Michael O’Donnell (Chicago, Ill.) as the Golden Eagles take on North Texas in a 7 p.m., contest at Reed Green Coliseum.

The Golden Eagles look to snap a seven-game losing streak as they enter the contest with a 7-19 overall and 4-11 in Conference USA play.

Jackson comes into his final home contest on the heels of his career-best scoring night of 31 points Thursday against Rice. The graduate transfer, in his only year for Southern Miss, leads the team in both scoring average at 13.0 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.

O’Donnell comes off his first start since the Morehead State contest on Nov. 28. O’Donnell, who has played two seasons with the program, missed six games in January with a shoulder injury, but has averaged 4.5 points and 3.2 rebounds per contest.

Khari Price, the junior from Slidell, La., ranks second on the Golden Eagle roster in the scoring column at 10.3 points per game, while also leading the team in assists with 115.

Southern Miss looks to avenge a 70-54 loss to the Mean Green (11-17, 6-9), which snapped a nine-game winning streak for the Golden Eagles over North Texas. The Golden Eagles lead the overall series 18-6.

Jeremy Combs leads three Mean Green players in double-digit scoring at 15.9 points per game, followed by J-Mychal Reese at 14.9 points per contest and Deckie Johnson at 14.5

There are several promotions planned for senior day at Green Coliseum. Please click here to find out about them. In addition, Aramark will be selling Fried Oreos and Fried Snickers as the premium food item of the game for $4.
