Greenville, NC (Sports Network) - Dwayne Davis scored 23 points to lead the Southern Miss Golden Eagles to an 86-82 overtime victory over the East Carolina Pirates in a Conference USA matchup at Minges Coliseum.

For the Golden Eagles (20-6, 9-2 C-USA), Neil Watson added 17 points and Jonathan Mills finished with 14 points, as both pulled down eight rebounds.

Akeem Richmond led the Pirates (14-10, 5-6) with 25 points, while Miguel Paul scored 22 points and Robert Sampson posted a double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds.

USM trailed for almost the entire half and was still down 10 with 4:37 to play in regulation, but finished the half on a 14-4 run. USM's Davis drained two free-throws with 28 second remaining to knot the score at 71-71 and a jumper by ECU at the buzzer was off the mark, sending the game into overtime.

In the extra session, the teams traded leads before a jumper by Davis put the Golden Eagles up for good with 1:45 left in overtime. USM made 6-of-8 from the free-throw line in the final minute of overtime to seal the victory.
