Linton Johnson's 3-pointer with about 9 minutes left gave Tulane a 49-35 lead. But Southern Miss chipped away, led by Mims, who scored eight straight points to cut the lead to 53-46 with 5:33 left. Mario Myles' layup made it 55-50 with 3:38 remaining, but the Golden Eagles would get no closer. Myles finished with 13. Johnson slammed through a missed free throw on the ensuing possession to start an 8-2 run that put the game away. The Green Wave ended the first half on 19-7 run, during which Southern Miss went 4 minutes without scoring.
