Coming off of a disappointing performance in their 75-43 home loss to Rhode Island last Saturday, Southern Miss will look to get back on track Saturday night against Division II program Spring Hill. Head coach Doc Sadler will have some work to do when it comes to his rotation, as he announced Friday that two guards are leaving the program.
Sophomore Shadell Millinghaus and junior Dallas Anglin, two of the Golden Eagles’ best perimeter shooters, are no longer with the program according to Patrick Magee of the Sun Herald. Millinghaus, who started six of Southern Miss’ seven games this season, was averaging 8.6 points and 2.7 rebounds per game.
Anglin, who began his college career at Hofstra and played at the College of Southern Idaho for Southern Miss assistant Jeremy Cox last season, was one of the team’s top reserves and averaged six points per game. Both players were 6-for-13 from three this season, with the percentage (46.2%) making Millinghaus and Anglin the top two three-point shooters on the team.
“We have released Dallas and Shadell from the men’s basketball program,” Sadler said in a release per Magee’s report. “I wish them both the best of luck in their future endeavors.”
With Millinghaus and Anglin no longer in the fold guards such as Chip Armelin and Rasham Suarez will be asked to do more to support redshirt sophomore Matt Bingaya, who’s currently leading the team in scoring with an average of 15.9 points per game. Southern Miss’ second-leading scorer is junior forward Norville Carey, who’s currently averaging 10.1 points per contest.
