Mustangs heading to New York to try to win NIT
When the season started, most “experts” and people around the program were thinking SMU would show a vast improvement from last season and probably finish around the middle of the conference. But I don’t think anyone would have expected the Mustangs to start out like they did and make it nearly the whole season without losing at home.
In fact, they finished the season with only one loss at home, and the lone loss was to defending National Champion Louisville. Even though the Mustangs lost their last three games to end the season and were “snubbed” by the selection committee, they have risen to the challenge and are taking the NIT by storm. While it isn’t the marquee tournament, the NIT is a great showcase for this program which looks to be just starting a rise to national prominence.
