Southern Miss  dug themselves an eleven point hole entering the half and were never a factor with the Monarchs riding 42.6% shooting and 18 extra shots.

Tyree Griffin was the Golden Eagles go to scorer with 20 points and seven helpers with Tim Rowe tossing in another eleven points.

Western Kentucky is a solid team and despite being on the road I’ll lay the small chalk…

Pick:
Western Kentucky -1.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
