Each week, I tell you what’s up and what’s down in SMU sports by numbers.

4 – The number of football recruits that committed to SMU this weekend. The first official new mustang, Keaton Bates, is an offensive lineman from Arlington Lamar high school. Bates took an official visit to SMU this weekend and that sealed the deal for him. The second commit, Rodney Clemons, is a defensive back from Taylor high school in Katy, Texas. The third was Matt McNew, an offensive linebacker from Robinson high school. And last but not least, wide receiver Alex Honey from Guyer high school in Denton, Texas took his opportunity to join the Mustangs soon after SMU had another wide receiver decommit.

16 – The number of points Destynee Hives-McCray scored for the SMU women’s basketball team in her first game back from suspension. Despite her big comeback, SMU dropped the game against Tulane in the final seconds and the Mustangs fell to 0-6 in the AAC.
