Stats & Info

SMU expected to add to home streak

SMU puts its 20-game home winning streak on the line against Tulsa on Thursday. ESPN's BPI gives the Mustangs a big edge, but it's worth noting the Golden Hurricane are the last team to win at SMU and only team to have done so in the last two seasons. Preview

Bubble Watch: SMU squarely on; UConn nowhere close

Cincinnati is in the NCAA tournament, the Bearcats have the resume, but SMU has some work to do if the American is going to have anymore than a one-bid league. Four-time champ UConn? Nowhere to be found on Bubble Watch.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Troy Caupain scored five points in the last minute, and Cincinnati stormed back to pull out a tough 57-55 win at Tulsa. The No. 14 Bearcats stay atop the American at 9-0 and 20-2 overall.
