The SMU Mustangs are eyeing consecutive wins after surging past Tulane 85-75 on Saturday as a 15 point home favorite.

Ethan Chargois gave SMU eleven points with Nat Dixon adding another eleven points and eight rebounds while Feron Hunt added seven points and seven boards.

The struggles of the Wichita State Shockers continued on Saturday with an 80-60 loss at UConn on Saturday as a 5.5 point road dog.

Wichita State fell behind 43-28 heading to the locker room and never recovered with the Huskies holding a 50%-33.8% shooting edge.

Jamarius Burton was the Shockers  best  offensive weapon  with 16 points followed by Erik Stevenson with a 12 point effort. Markis McDuffie gave Wichita State nine points and four pulls while Dexter Dennis contributed eight points.

SMU Mustangs are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. American Athletic Conference. Wichita State Shockers are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall and  are 2-11 ATS in their last 13 vs. American Athletic Conference. 

Neither team has looked very of late so something small on the points if you must…

Pick:
SMU +3

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
