RECOMMENDED READING


HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — Tyree Griffin scored 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, both career highs, to lead Southern Miss past NAIA Southern-New Orleans 79-69 in the season opener Friday night.

Dominic Magee added 15 points, and Tim Rowe and Cortez Edwards had 10 each for Southern Miss, which controlled the glass 48-38 and dominated at the free-throw line, hitting 30 of 45 to Southern-New Orleans' 12 for 21.

Southern-New Orleans got 13 points and seven rebounds from D'Ante Russell-Hall and Marcel Daniels had 12 points.
