In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Houston at SMU.
The Houston Cougars recorded their first loss a few days ago but then were able to bounce back with a 79-70 win over Wichita State. But things didn’t come easy as the Cougars were trailing by 6 at half time but then got back in the game later in the second half. Corey Davis Jr. finished with 20 points while Armoni Brooks added 14 points and 5 rebounds.
The SMU Mustangs increased are 3-1 in conference play at the moment after beating Tulsa 77-57 on Saturday. The Mustangs started the game very well, led by 11 points at half time and never looked back. They shot 41% from the floor in that one, including 13 made threes. Jahmal McMurray paced the big offense of the Mustangs with 22 points and four pulls while Ethan Chargois adding 18 points and five boards.
Apart from the last games Houston played, the Cougars showed that they are a good team, loaded with talent which can go far in the postseason. This is the perfect time for them to show it against a tough opponent like SMU.
