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.
