SMU 68, TCU 62

Robert Nyakundi scored 17 points, London Giles added 14 and SMU

rode a late run to a 68-62 victory Wednesday night over crosstown

rival TCU.

Nyakundi was 6 of 13 from the field, including three 3-pointers.

Jeremiah Samarrippas and Aliaksei Patsevich added 10 points apiece

for the Mustangs (11-13), who shot 52 percent from the field.

J.R. Cadot led the Horned Frogs (13-10) with 14 points, and

Amric Fields and Garlon Green scored 10 each.

TCU led 59-58 after two Fields free throws with 2:06 to play,

but a Giles 3-pointer gave SMU the lead for good. Patsevich added a

layup, and he, Nyakundi and Samarrippas each hit two free throws in

the final minute to seal the victory.

This is the 10th straight year the Metroplex rivals have met as

nonconference opponents; the teams played together in the Southwest

and Western Athletic conferences from 1923 to 2001.
