Mustangs Fall To (RV/RV) UCF

DALLAS (SMU) – The Mustangs fell to the (rv/rv) UCF Knights, 66-54, inside Moody Coliseum Saturday afternoon.

The Mustangs were in front by as many as 12 in the first half, led by the hot shooting start, hitting four of their first five from behind the arc. UCF closed the gap in the middle of the second quarter, giving the home team a slim one-point deficit at the break.

UCF took the lead early in the third, and would charge ahead by seven at the conclusion of three quarters of play.

SMU hit a few big shots to start the fourth, and an Ariana Whitfield three made it a one-score game. But, the Knights had an answer, going on 7-0 run, keeping the Mustangs off the board for four minutes. UCF's Korneila White secured the win with nine points in the quarter and 20 for the contest.

JaQuia White set a career high in assists with six in her fourth start of the season. White also added a pair of steals to her line. Kayla White led the Mustangs in scoring with a 15-point performance, including eight in the third quarter.

BriShonne Tollie reached double figures in scoring for the third time this season.

SMU had one of their best three-point shooting nights of the season, connecting on 8-of-19 from long distance. They fall to 8-15 on the season and 2-8 in conference play. UCF improves to 20-3 and 9-1 in the league, their only blemish coming on the road to UConn.

SMU returns to Moody Coliseum on Thursday as the Pirates of East Carolina roll into town. Tipoff is slated for 7 p.m.
