GARLAND (AP) - Markus Kennedy scored a team-high 14 points off the bench and Yanick Moreira recorded his first major-college double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds as SMU’s front court continued its early-season dominance in the Mustangs’ 72-53 victory over Sam Houston State on Tuesday night.

SMU improved to 5-1 in its second home game as part of the Corpus Christi Challenge. The Mustangs will continue with games in Corpus Christi, Texas, on Friday against Virginia.

The Bearkats dropped to 4-2 with their second consecutive loss. They were led by Paul Baxter with 19 points, including 4-for-5 on 3-pointers.

SMU outscored Sam Houston 32-16 in points in the paint, out-rebounding the Bearkats 46-20.

Nick Russell added 13 points for the Mustangs.

Kennedy, a sophomore forward, transferred from Villanova. Moreira transferred to SMU after leading South Plains College of Lubbock, Texas to a 36-0 record in 2011-12 and the NJCAA national championship.
