HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Jerrold Brooks netted 20 points as Southern Mississippi rolled over Marshall 102-46 for its largest ever Conference USA win Wednesday night.

Dwayne Davis added 19 points, Rashard McGill 13 and Daveon Boardingham 12 for Southern Miss, which has now won eight straight and has averaged a 23.4-point margin of victory in its C-USA games. Marshall (9-10, 2-2) got 16 points from Elijah Pittman as it fell to 0-6 on the road this year.
