While SMU won’t be going dancing this season, they’ll be taking their final games very seriously, especially this one against the Connecticut Huskies.
The Mustangs sit at #21 in the country and have a self imposed ban on them this season. As for the Huskies they sit at 4th in the conference at 8-4, just 1.5 games out of 1st place.
SMU would love to make a statement this season. With no postseason play on their plate, winning the conference in the regular season is the lone thing they have to play for.
SMU, who was once one of the few undefeated teams in the nation, sits now at #21 only 0.5 game back of first place Temple.
SMU has alternated wins and losses over their past 6 games, with their most recent win coming over the Gonzaga Bulldogs 69-60. The Mustangs turned into the spoiler role in this one as they did not allow the Zags to get a signature win they sought for their resume.
Despite outscoring their opponents 79.4 to 64.2 this season, the Mustangs are just 9-11 ATS. They’re ab it better on the road this season as they’ve gone 6-4 ATS.
The Huskies lone signature win this season has been against Texas this season. While they sit just 1.5 games out of first in the conference and 18-7 overall, this team lacks that resume building win.
Like Gonzaga, they’ll try to knock off SMU and add a win over a ranked team to the list.
The Huskies have won 4 of their last 5 with wins over UCF, Memphis, ECU, and Tulsa. The lone loss in the mix hurt them the most though as they fell to Temple, who they’re chasing for 1st place in the conference.
Connecticut has been a much bette team in the confines of their home arena this season. Uconn has gone 12-2 SU while scoring 77 points per game compared to the 60 they give up.
They’ll look for Shonn Miller to lead the way here, who leads the team with 13.4 points per game and is shooting 59% on the season.
