HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Southern Miss basketball held its first practice of the 2017-18 season on Monday. The Golden Eagles open the season against Southern-New Orleans on November 10.

USM will look different this season as three newcomers and three players who redshirted last year are set to suit up for the Eagles. While there are questions for coach Doc Sadler and company to answer, Southern Miss feels confident it will exceed last season's nine wins.

"We're going to win more games," said USM junior guard Tyree Griffin, a Oklahoma State transfer. "We're going to win more than eight games for sure."

"How many games you're going to win, I don't know," said fourth-year USM head coach Doc Sadler. "But I know this: This is the best I have felt since I've been here. And in my business winning and losing is usually what makes you feel good or not. I know that there's not going to be very many ball games that we go into that I don't feel like we have a good chance. And that's positive."

    Though soft-spoken, Steven Anderson hits hard. A "violent" runner as Southern Miss teammate Keon Howard describes him, perhaps Anderson is making up for all those years spent at quarterback. "Steven runs like he doesn't want to be hit no more,” Howard said.
