That was a nice run the Ponies made late in the first half. What a horrific start, though. Sasser is 0-9. There is no movement off the ball at all on offense. That needs to change. Also, the refs are HORRIBLE. The srubs of the WAC officials...that is pretty bad.

Ugly 1st half but I'll take the win. Cooper was on fire for the Owls..wow! Way to go Q, Damon, and Sasser. We hit some big free throws!!! Let's all get out for the UTEP game...

I was there last night to see the game. Not pretty. But the Ponies should be congratulated. This was the second game where we didn't play well, at least offensively, and we still figured out a way to win. That's a sign of a team that is growing and maturing, when a team can win even it doesn't play its best. The defense, especially against Tulsa, was great, and the defense came up big last night, leading to the comeback.

Way to go, Ponies! Keep it going.

I was at the game too! Yelling for SMU all the way.

Yes, the Mustangs did not get off ot a very good start, but they hung in. The third period the Mustangs started going inside and really scored points.

Rice was really up and their shooting and defensive play were stellar the first half. Remember they beat TCU.

A win, is a win. Pretty or not. Way to go Mustangs. Keep it up!!
