Kilavorus Thompson scored 15 points, all in the second half, and grabbed 15 rebounds to lead Southern Mississippi to a 54-43 win Tuesday night over South Alabama.
A 3-point play, a dunk, and two free throws by Thompson sparked a 13-2 run to start the second half, but it was Southern Mississippi's aggressive defense that won the game.
The Golden Eagles (4-0) limited South Alabama to 33 percent shooting and would have had an easy time with the Jaguars if not for poor shooting of its own. The Golden Eagles shot just 32 percent.
The Jaguars (3-2) scored just two points in the first nine minutes of the second half.
Southern Miss led 25-19 at the half.
