Southern Miss received a boost to its injury-depleted lineup late this week with the return of sophomore guard Shadell Millinghaus. The sophomore had originally intended to transfer and left the team after playing in seven games and starting in six this season. But now Millinghaus is back with the team and hoping to contribute.

“The team, as well as the coaching staff, welcome Shadell back and we look forward to the future,” head coach Doc Sadler said in the release.

A 6-foot-2 native of Brooklyn, Millinghaus averaged 8.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game this season on 52 percent shooting from the field and 46 percent shooting from 3-point range.

“I’m glad to be back in the program,” Millinghaus said in the release. “I’m just here to support them in any way possible and I’m looking forward to the future.”

The return of Millinghaus comes at a good time for the Golden Eagles. Southern Miss is in the midst of a seven-game losing streak and is 0-4 in Conference USA this season.
