Southern Mississippi started its game against FIU on Thursday night with only seven players dressed. The two teams went back and forth all night, and the game eventually went into overtime. Suddenly, Southern Miss found itself in a bizarre situation: it only had four players.
Southern Miss down to FOUR players on the court in overtime. Down 72-69 with the ball and 41.7 seconds remaining.

Three Golden Eagles players fouled out during the game, forcing Chip Armelin, Keljin Blevins, Kevin Holland and Shadell Millinghaus to close. And Southern Miss still almost won playing four-on-five.
Just think of how embarrassed FIU would have been if it lost that game in overtime to a team with four guys. At that point, might be time to reconsider your life's passion.
