*3 Star Play Over* Southern Miss Coach Doc Sadler said before the season that his team would play much faster and shoot it much better than last year. He was right. Southern Miss is playing about 3 possessions per game quicker than last year in conference play. They are also 4th in the conference in offensive efficiency after being 14th last year. On the other side though, Southern Miss has dropped from 8th in CUSA in defensive efficiency to 14th. They aren't guarding well at all.
FIU averaged 18.8 seconds before shooting the ball last year. This year they have sped up to where they are averaging only 17.1 seconds before putting up a shot.
Both of these teams rank in the top 20 in the country in turnover percentage. They value the ball very well.
With a quicker pace and Southern Miss' worse defense I think this number is too low.
Take the over.
