Season Opens At Moody Coliseum On Nov. 25

DALLAS (SMU) – SMU's 2020-21 season will open at Moody Coliseum on Nov. 25 against Sam Houston State. The remaining non-conference schedule includes home games Nov. 30 vs. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Dec. 2 vs Houston Baptist, Dec. 5 at Dayton and Dec. 8 vs Vanderbilt. The Mustangs could potentially add to the non-conference slate.

The previously scheduled non-conference matchups at Moody Coliseum against Evansville and UNLV will be pushed to the 2021-22 season. The home-and-home series with Arizona State moves back a season as well, starting in Tempe in 2021-22 with a return game at Moody Coliseum in 2022-23. The game against Georgia at Moody Coliseum was eliminated from the schedule when the Global Sports Invitational was canceled due to the start date of the season being moved from Nov. 10 to Nov. 25.

The American Athletic Conference schedule will be 20 games in a double round-robin format. The American Men's Basketball Championship is March 11-14 (Thursday-Sunday) at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth. The Mustangs were picked third in the AAC preseason poll behind Houston and Memphis. Kendric Davis and Tyson Jolly were selected preseason all-conference.

Head Coach Tim Jankovich enters his fifth season leading the Mustangs with a 90-49 record at SMU, that includes a 63-15 (.808) mark at Moody Coliseum. In the past four seasons, the Mustangs have seven wins over top-20 teams.

SMU finished the shortened 2019-20 season with a 19-11 overall record. The Mustangs went 15-2 at Moody Coliseum, winning eight of nine home games in league play. SMU led the AAC in scoring (72.9), field goal percentage (45.1%), free-throw percentage (76.2%, 25th NCAA), assists (15.6, 19th NCAA) and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.2).

I love getting the experience playing in Dayton in case we are in the First Four.

Most pre-season prognosticators expect both SMU and Dayton to be NCAA Tournament worthy so I would think they will find a slot for that game on one of the ESPN stations. Who knows whether games will be played as scheduled by the time we get into early December.
