SMU relied on one of the nation’s stingiest defenses to have the program’s best season since 1987-88. That defense got a boost from the Mustangs’ hot-shooting offense in the second half of an 80-67 victory against LSU.
Nick Russell and Nic Moore each scored 15 points to lead the Mustangs to a 64-55 win Sunday over No. 21 UConn and a sweep of their season series with the Huskies.
Moody Madness indeed, and quicker than even Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown thought.
The former Duncanville standout spent two years at K-State, but saw limited playing time this year. Russell in May announced he was leaving the Wildcats program.
