Southern Miss finished a game with 4 players

The Golden Eagles lost to FIU, but it was close! Not bad for only having four guys.

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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.
