Neil Watson led Southern Miss (25-9) with 16 points, LaShay Page had 15 and Kentucky transfer Darnell Dodson scored all 14 of his points in the second half. But the Golden Eagles let a chance to win their first-ever tournament game slip away in the final minutes.

Southern Miss led by as many as five points in the second half but had no answer when McGruder and freshman point guard Angel Rodriguez keyed a late surge.
