Southern Miss women’s basketball was too much for Marshall women’s basketball Sunday as the Golden Eagles downed the Herd, 70-61.

With the loss, the Herd dropped to 7-15 overall (1-8 C-USA) while the Golden Eagles improved to 13-9 (5-4 C-USA).

Golden Eagles’ redshirt senior guard Jayla King tallied a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds. She also recorded a team-high five assists and three blocks in the Southern Miss victory. Five other players had double-figures for the Golden Eagles. Sophomore guard Respect Leaphart and freshman guard Allie Kennedy had 12 points each, while sophomore forward Alarie Mayze and redshirt junior guard Megan Brown both had 10 points.

Junior guard Shayna Gore led the Herd on offense with 16 points, while graduate student forward Talequia Hamilton and freshman forward Taylor Pearson scored 10 points each. Hamilton had a career-high six assists, and Pearson grabbed a career-high eight rebounds.

“I thought Taylor Pearson had a good game today,” head coach Tony Kemper said. “She’s definitely getting better. She jetted into the post and made some plays for us.”

Marshall fought throughout the whole game and even trailed by one with 7:06 left in the game. Southern Miss would go on a 10-1 run over the next three minutes to outlast the Herd.

Marshall has a three-game home stand coming up, starting off with UTSA Thursday at 5 p.m. at the Cam Henderson Center.
