Southern Miss won a big game against Florida Atlantic University in the final seconds last night.

The Golden Eagles defeated FAU 68-66 Thursday improving their record to 8-18 on the season.

LaDavius Draine and Tyler Stevenson led the Golden Eagles in the victory by making 16 points each.

USM was trailing at halftime by two points with a 33-31 score. The game remained close for the two teams all night and came to the final seconds of the game.

Sophomore Tyler Stevenson was fouled on an offensive rebound with the game tied 66-66. The foul sent him to the free-throw line for two shots, and Stevenson knocked down both of them to put the Golden Eagles up by two points, winning the game.

Stevenson struggled at the line most of the night going 2-for-6 before the two final shots.

USM will host Florida International University Saturday, Feb. 15 at 2 p.m.
