SMU enters the 2017 NCAA Tournament on a tear, winning 16 straight games before its first-round matchup with Southern Cal.
The Mustangs will try to continue their hot ways against a Southern Cal team that beat Providence in the First Four on Wednesday. SMU hasn’t lost since falling to Cincinnati on Jan. 12. They’re led by Semi Ojeleye’s 18.9 points per game, followed by Sterling Brown’s 13.3 and Shake Milton’s 13.1.
Southern Cal, meanwhile, must deal with a quick turnaround after a victory in the First Four.
The Trojans have won four of their past five games after losing four consecutive contests from Feb. 11-26. They overcame a 15-point halftime deficit against Providence to claim a 75-71 win in memorable fashion.
Bennie Boatwright leads Southern Cal with 15.1 points per game, and Chimezie Metu follows with 14.5.
