A look at the Mustangs’ winter campaign

Jan. 18 — vs

Texas-Pan American:

The currently 4-7 University of Texas-Pan American Broncos visit SMU right after exams finish up and the matchup should be a tune up before SMU’s long road trip to Wyoming.

The Broncos are led by Javorn Farrell, who averages over 16 points and close to five rebounds while averaging over 30 minutes per game.

With their balanced rebounding thanks to four players with four rebounds or more per game, SMU will have to box out and limit second
chance opportunities.

Jan. 20 — at Wyoming:

The last test before winter break for SMU is the University of Wyoming, who will undoubtedly be a tough test for the Mustangs.

The Cowboys are 7-2 on the season and boast Riley Grabau, who is playing just under 35 minutes per game, but is deadly from three-point range, shooting nearly 63 percent from beyond the arc.

Larry Nance Jr. is a solid forward, averaging 13.3 points per game and nine rebounds.

Jan. 1 — at Cincinnati:

SMU travels to Cincinnati for their New Years Day matchup against the University of Cincinnati Bearcats, who are 7-1.

The Mustangs will have to contain senior guard Sean Kilpatrick in their first american Athletic Conference matchup, who is on a tear to start the season almost averaging 20 points, nearly four rebounds and three assists per game.

Jan. 4 — vs

Connecticut:

Moody Magic returns to the Hilltop when SMU hosts the University of Connecticut, currently the number ninth ranked team in
the country.

Senior Shabazz Napier is having a great start to the season and is considered as one of the better players in the country. Napier is averaging 15.3 points, seven rebounds, nearly six assists and two steals
per game.

These are starts with stopping Napier for SMU, but even if the Mustangs can, SMU will have a tough task on its hands when the Huskies visit.

JAN. 12 — at Louisville:

SMU follows that up by visiting the defending national champions, the University of Louisville Cardinals, currently ranked number six with a 8-1 record. Montrezl Harrell is also a big body down low that is playing well, nearly averaging a double-double on the season.

These are two really tough games back-to-back, but SMU fans will definitely have their TVs locked on the two games as students get ready to return.

Jan. 15 — vs USF:

Stan Heath has the University of South Florida Bulls starting well this year, with a 6-2 record so far and just coming off a win over The University of Alabama.

This is SMU’s first matchup of two with the Bulls in just two weeks and SMU will be coming off a tough two games, but this could be a good measuring stick if SMU does fall to the two powerhouses. Forward Victor Rudd and guard Corey Allen Jr. create a nice inside-outside duo for the Bulls.

Both are averaging around 14 points and five rebounds on
the season.
