DALLAS (AP) --- Shaquille Harrison had 21 points, Pat Birt hit a crucial
3-pointer and scored 12 of his 17 points after halftime and Tulsa rallied from
eight points down in the second half to beat No. 16 SMU 82-77 on Wednesday
Nic Moore scored 27 to lead the Mustangs (20-3, 9-3 American Athletic). They
lost for the first time in 13 home games and dropped to 2-3 since their 18-0
start to a season that won't include postseason play because of NCAA sanctions.
Moore twice hit 3-pointers to pull SMU within a point in the final minute, but
Birt answered the first with a 3 and James Woodard followed the second with two
of his six free throws in the final 1:04.
The Golden Hurricane (16-8, 8-4) ended a four-game losing streak against SMU
with their eighth win in 10 games since an 0-2 conference start.
