HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) Norville Carey stole the ball and broke away for the game-winning dunk with 6 seconds left, lifting Southern Miss over Troy 72-70 on Tuesday night.

The Golden Eagles (3-1) fought back from a seven-point halftime deficit, surging to a 67-64 lead after Matt Bingaya's jumper and Chip Armelin's layup. Troy's Chris Bilbo hit a layup and followed with a jumper after Bingaya split a pair of free throws, making it 68-68.

Bingaya hit a jumper for the lead, but Bilbo answered with another layup with 50 seconds left. Armelin couldn't connect on a jumper, and Bilbo attempted to run the clock down before turning it over to Carey. Troy (1-3) couldn't get a shot off as time expired.

Bingaya scored a career-high 25 points and Armelin had 15.

Musa Abdul-Aleem paced the Trojans, hitting six 3-pointers for a career-high 26 points. John Walton III and Bilbo each added 12 points.
