DALLAS (AP) - London Giles scored 17 points Wednesday night to help SMU break a three-game losing streak with a 64-50 victory over Tulane.

Giles scored at least 10 for the 18th straight game for the Mustangs (12-16, 3-10 Conference USA). Leslee Smith grabbed 11 rebounds, and Jeremiah Samarrippas had seven assists.

Robert Nyakundi, leading the conference with 41.7 percent 3-point-shooting accuracy, improved on that by going 3 of 6 from long range for nine points.

Five-time Conference USA Freshman of the Week Ricky Tarrant’s 21 points paced the Green Wave (15-12, 3-10), who dropped their fourth consecutive game. Josh Davis had 11 rebounds.

The Mustangs shot 53.5 percent (23 of 43) to the Green Wave’s 28.9 percent (13 of 45). But Tulane made 22 of 31 free throws, while SMU was limited to 11 of 18.

SMU, which never trailed, split the season series after Tulane won 80-74 on Jan. 25.
