Denver vs. Southern Miss final score: Pioneers fall to Golden Eagles, 61-50

Andrew Fielding-US PRESSWIRE

The Denver Pioneers shot just 33.3 percent as a team on Tuesday night in an 11-point loss to Southern Miss.

Despite a strong offensive performance from sophomore Royce O'Neale, the Denver Pioneers came up short on Tuesday night in a 61-50 loss to the Southern Miss Golden Eagles.

The 6'5 O'Neale poured in a season-high five three-pointers to lead the Pioneers with 22 points, but still did not receive enough help from his teammates in a game where Denver's entire team struggled with foul trouble. Though he failed to reach double figures in scoring for the second straight game, junior forward Chris Udofia did manage to put forth a strong effort for Denver on the defensive end with game-highs in both steals (five) and blocks (three).

Along with hitting 50 percent of their field goals and 57.1 percent of their attempts from the perimeter, the Golden Eagles held a significant rebounding advantage on the defensive glass for much of the evening. Southern Miss senior guard Dwayne Davis also chipped in 22 points on 8-of-10 shooting in the win to take unanimous player of the game honors, as the Golden Eagles are now 6-0 for the first time since 2006.
