DALLAS (SMU/WNIT) – The SMU women's basketball team was one of 64 selected to play in the WNIT. The Mustangs will host Little Rock Thursday at 7 p.m. in Moody Coliseum in the first round.

SMU finished the regular season and conference tournament with a 16-12 record under second-year head coach Toyelle Wilson. Savannah Wilkinson, Jasmine Smith and Ella Brow each earned All-American Athletic Conference honors.

Jasmine Smith leads the team with 12.7 points per game. Chantae Embry (12.0) and Savannah Wilkinson (11.6) join Smith in averaging double-digits. Wilkinson and Embry have both earned five double-doubles this season.
