The Cincinnati Bearcats and the Southern Methodist Mustangs will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Moody Coliseum-Dallas.

ABOUT CINCINNATI (22-2, 11-0 AAC): Junior forward Kyle Washington averages team bests of 13.8 points and 7.2 rebounds after recording 14 and 11 to go along with four steals in Wednesday’s 60-50 victory over Central Florida for his seventh double-double of the season. Sophomore guard Jacob Evans (13.4 points) registered 11 points, six assists, four steals and four rebounds after going scoreless against Connecticut on Feb. 4. Caupain (10.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, team-high 4.6 assists) was third nationally and leads the AAC in assist-to-turnover ratio at 3.93, and needs 16 assists to move into third on the school’s all-time list.

ABOUT SMU (21-4, 11-1): Junior forward Semi Ojeleye is third in the AAC in scoring at 18.2 points after recording a career-high 30 while grabbing 10 rebounds in Thursday’s 66-50 victory over Temple. Senior forward Ben Moore (11.6 points, team-high 8.1 rebounds), senior guard Sterling Brown (12.0 points, 6.9 boards) and
Ojeleye (6.8) are the biggest contributors to a team that was ranked second in the country with a plus-11.3 margin on the glass. Sophomore Shake Milton (13.7 points, club-best 4.4 assists, 4.2 rebounds) and Jarrey Foster (9.4 points, 5.3 rebounds) complement Brown in the backcourt.

Bovada Sportsbook currently has the Mustangs listed as 3½ -point favorites versus the Bearcats, while the game’s total is sitting at 129 according to GTBETS.

Last time out for Southern Methodist, they were a 66-50 winner as they battled Owls on the road. They covered in the match as a -7.5-point favorite.

Last time out for Cincinnati, they were a 60-50 winner as they battled Knights at home. They failed to cover in the match as a -12.5-point favorite.

First place in the American Athletic Conference is at stake when No. 11 Cincinnati visits SMU on Sunday in a battle of red-hot teams. Cincinnati rides a 15-game win streak into the showdown while the Mustangs have won seven straight and 17 of their last 18 with the only loss coming against the Bearcats, who nearly blew a 15-point second-half lead before holding off SMU 66-64 on Jan. 12 behind 16 points from senior guard Troy Caupain.

“The game’s never over playing against a great team like SMU,” Caupain told reporters. “We’ve got to be prepared for their best punch. We gave them confidence at the end and we didn’t capitalize on that lead that we had and that made the game a nail-biter.” Cincinnati owns a half-game lead on the Mustangs in the AAC with Memphis three games behind SMU in third, but there’s more than just AAC tournament seeding at stake. If the Mustangs lose Sunday, they would likely have to win the ACC tournament in order to reach the NCAA Tournament since their resume is void of a victory that would get the committee’s attention. SMU, which won its last 18 at Moody Coliseum and is 64-4 at home since 2013-14, was third nationally in points allowed through Friday’s games at 58.3 with the Bearcats tied for sixth (61.3).
