HATTIESBURG, MS (AP) - R.L. Horton scored 25 points, Josimar Ayarza added 17 and Southern Miss blew past South Alabama 93-58 on Wednesday night.
The Golden Eagles (2-0) put together an early 16-0 run and led 38-20 at the break before putting away the Jaguars (1-1) with a 26-5 run to start the second half.
Southern Miss won without forward Gary Flowers, last year's leading scorer, who missed the game with what coach Larry Eustachy called "flu-like symptoms."
Flowers led Southern Miss with 15 points in a 60-53 win over South Florida on Friday, but Horton was 10 of 20 from the field, including 5 for 7 from the 3-point line.
Tim Williams led the Jaguars with 17 points.
South Alabama coach Ronnie Arrow was ejected early in the second half.
