StatSheet projects Southern Miss as an NCAA Tournament bubble team but likely out unless it improves. The Golden Eagles are #44 in the StatSheet StatRank with a 15-4 overall record and a 4-0 record in the C-USA.
During its last four games, Southern Miss helped itself with wins against UAB, Southern Methodist, Houston, and Rice.
Southern Miss has little experience against top competition, with an 0-4 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes an 0-2 record against the RPI Top 50 and an 0-1 record against AP ranked teams.
