With just 2 games remaining on the AAC schedule, SMU looks to send a message by winning the conference despite their postseason ban.
They’ll welcome in the Uconn Huskies, who beat them back on 2/18 which more than likely punched them a ticket into March.
Now, it’s SMU who looks for revenge as they sit atop the conference tied with Temple for first place.
The Connecticut Huskies sit at 20-9 overall and with their win over SMU at home, they have a solid resume now to pretty much assure themselves a spot in March. They can really leave zero doubt with a road win here.
Currently, Uconn sits 6th in the conference and can do no worse than that heading into the tournament. However, they have a chance to move up in the standings by finishing the season with a couple wins.
Uconn has gone 2-2 over their past 4 games, with one of those being the win over SMU, along with a win over USF. Against the Mustangs, the Huskies used a big 2nd half from Amida Brimah. The 7 footer had 16 points 8 rebounds and was a force defensively with 5 blocks in the victory.
Connecticut will look to improve on a 6-3 road record and comes in off a win last time they were on the road against the USF Bulls.
The Mustangs season has just 2 games left thanks to a postseason suspension, but they aren’t going away without a spectacular finish.
SMU currently sits tied atop the AAC and would love to send a message by grabbing the title, especially outright. They’ll finish with this one against Uconn and then play the season finale in Cincinnati.
SMU has already sent a message as they currently sit as the only ranked team at #24 in the nation. They were one of the very few undefeated teams left in the nation earlier this season.
The Mustangs are led by Senior G Nic Moore, who has showed a lot of heart this season. The Senior has battled through multiple injuries and played through them, knowing he won’t have a postseason to play in.
Moore has averaged 16.1 points per game to go along with 5.3 assists per game. Moore had 14 points and 6 assists in the loss to Uconn.

Free UConn Huskies vs. SMU Mustangs CBB Prediction:
The Huskies will be playing with a chip on their shoulder here as a season sweep over SMU would lock in their resume, but also really put them in a better position for the conference tourney.
However, Senior Night will be very emotional for this Mustangs team as they’ve been through a lot.
