The Southern Miss Golden Eagles open Conference USA Tournament play Thursday versus UAB at noon. USM is the No. 2 seed in what they hope will land them a ticket back to the NCAA tournament for the second straight year.
However, the team realizes that most experts currently have them on the outside looking in, and many of them believe the Golden Eagles will have to win the tournament in order to get in.
Southern Miss and seventh-seed UAB get going at noon tomorrow in the Conference USA quarterfinals in Tulsa, OK. The Golden Eagles swept the season series with the Blazers.
