The SMU Mustangs will try to keep their hot offensive start going Wednesday night when they play the Houston Baptist Huskies in the Mustangs' third consecutive home game to open the 2020-21 season. SMU (2-0) has over 90 points each in wins over Sam Houston State and Texas A&M Corpus-Christi while shooting 52.5 percent from the field and averaging 24 assists. Kendric Davis, a preseason All-AAC first-team selection, is averaging 22 points, eight assists and four rebounds per game.
Arizona State harassed Houston Baptist into a slew of turnovers, leading to easy baskets in transition during a massive first-half run. Coming off a bogged-down loss to No. 3 Villanova, the Sun Devils were at their free-flowing best and turned their home opener into a rout. Marcus Bagley scored 21 points, fellow freshman Josh Christopher added 17 and No. 18 Arizona State used a huge first-half run to beat Houston Baptist 100-77 on Sunday.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Freshman Mike Miles scored 13 points and Chuck O'Bannon had 11 points, nine rebounds and two steals to help TCU beat Houston Baptist 69-45 on Wednesday night in the season opener for both teams.
