HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Looking to snap a two-game losing streak, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs turned up the intensity Saturday as they took a 70-59 road win at Southern Mississippi at Reed Green Coliseum.
Redshirt junior forward Erik McCree had struggled in Tech’s last two games — a pair of losses at Florida International and Florida Atlantic — scoring only a combined 14 points in the Sunshine State losses.
But McCree turned things up against USM, recording a double-double with 25 points and 10 rebounds to put Tech back on a winning track.
