DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Just a week after entering the AP Top 25 for the first time since 1985, SMU men’s basketball is back where it began — on the outside looking in.

The No. 23 Mustangs lost to American Athletic Conference opponent Temple on Sunday, 71-64.

The loss follows a 77-65 win over Rutgers on Friday, a game initially scheduled for Thursday night that was postponed due to a snowstorm in the Northeast. SMU was then forced to play at Temple less than 48 hours later.

With the loss, the team moved to 20-6 overall, with all six losses coming away from home.

“We didn’t stay at the Ritz on the Four Seasons. We’ve been on the road six days, and I think we have $41,” Brown joked after the game. “But I don’t want to use that as an excuse.”

SMU, currently third in the AAC with a 9-4 record, returns home to play Houston on Wednesday before traveling to Connecticut for Sunday’s game.
