JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Thanks to a buzzer-beating lay-up from Dontavious Proby, Biloxi wins a 40-38 thriller over long-time rival Gulfport in the Joe Barlow Thanksgiving Invitational. 

Dillyn Neely chipped in eight points for the Indians, including a few highlight-worthy plays early in the game. The win sends Biloxi to the Invitational Championship Game against Buckhorn (AL) Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. 

It was the second game in the last two days Gulfport needed a buzzer-beater to decide the outcome, as the heroics of Willie Rhines lifted them past Faith Academy Monday, but they ended up on the losing end of a heart-stopping shot in the semifinals. The Admirals now face the host St. Martin for third place Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.

    It’s been over a year since Southern Miss hired Jon Gilbert as its athletic director on January 24, 2017. Golden Eagle athletics have been trending up since then. USM recently added beach volleyball to its repertoire and will break ground on a new indoor volleyball facility this week. Gilbert is especially proud of the USM’s performance on and off the field – The Eagles boasted a 2.94 cumulative grade-point-average this academic year.
