SMU 62, Utah 55

Jalen Jones scored 20 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and SMU beat

Utah 62-55 Wednesday night to improve the Mustangs to 7-1 under new

coach Larry Brown for their best start in six years.

SMU took the lead for good by scoring the last 11 points before

halftime. The Mustangs made its first six 3-pointers of the game,

including three in a first half, ending a 17-3 run that included

those last 11 points.

Utah (4-2) appeared to have a tying 3-pointer midway through the

second half, but during a timeout 10 seconds after that shot,

officials looked at replays and ruled that Jarred DuBois’ foot was

on the line, making it two points instead.

The Mustangs are 4-0 at Moody Coliseum under Brown, the Hall of

Fame coach who in the college ranks at Kansas, UCLA and now SMU, is

99-11 in home games.
