Mustangs Top Wichita State In 28-Point Win

DALLAS (SMU) – The Mustangs set season-highs in points, assists and threes as they took down Wichita State, 78-50, inside Moody Coliseum on Tuesday night. Kayla White dropped 16 on the Shockers as the Mustangs rolled to their first conference win of the season.

The Mustangs broke out to an early lead in the game, scoring the first eight points of the contest. Ariana Whitfield dropped in a bucket 15 seconds in, and the Mustangs would hold the lead the rest of the game. Kayla White's three-pointers on back-to-back possessions closed out the quarter with the Mustangs on top by 12. They would carry the 12-point lead into the intermission.

Eight different Mustangs scored in the third quarter, as the Mustangs extended their lead to 19 after three by holding the Shockers to single digits in the period. They would grow their lead in the final period by dropping 25 on the Shockers to bring the final margin of victory to 28. It was the Mustangs' largest American Conference win since beating Houston by 29 in 2017.

SMU was effective from behind the arc in the game, connecting on a season-high nine from 17 attempts. The previous high for the Mustangs was six against Northern Colorado. The Mustangs also assisted on 21 of 31 made baskets, topping their previous season high of 17 dimes.

Froling, who had just set the SMU record for career blocks in the previous game, came off the bench tonight and had an incredible second period, with four blocks. The senior finished the game with seven blocks, tying the program record for a single game. With her seven, Froling also moved up to third place in American Conference history in career blocks.

Ariana Whitfield scored in double figures for the Mustangs, while also adding three steals in the effort. Altogether, the Mustangs had 32 points from their bench in the game.

Next up, the Mustangs hit the road for a two game away stretch starting with UCF on Saturday and wrapping up with UConn next Wednesday.
