The 14th ranked Mustangs took on Tulsa on March 2nd and easily took care of the Golden Hurricane by a score of 93-70. All five Mustang starters scored in double figures.
SMU improved to 26-4 overall, and 16-1 in the American Conference. The victory clinched a share of the regular season conference title.
