The fans at Moody Coliseum-Dallas will be treated to a game between the Tulsa Golden Hurricane and the Southern Methodist Mustangs when they take their seats on Thursday.

ABOUT TULSA (14-14, 8-8 AAC): Freshman forward Martins Igbanu was named the AAC Rookie of the Week Monday after averaging 12 points and 7.5 rebounds in the wins against South Florida and East Carolina. Junior Etou scored 20 of his game-high 23 points in the second half against the Pirates on Sunday after being held to eight points on 3-for-10 shooting in his previous game against USF. Corey Henderson Jr. went 4-of-6 from beyond the arc to finish with 14 points as the Golden Hurricane set a season high with 12 3-pointers against East Carolina while Sterling Taplin flirted with a double-double by adding 13 points and nine assists.

ABOUT SMU (25-4, 15-1):
Shake Milton drained six 3-pointers en route to 20 points and pulled down eight rebounds while Semi Ojeleye scored 16 points in the win against UConn to finish in double figures for the 21st consecutive game. Ben Moore narrowly missed his ninth double-double of the season as he registered 15 points and nine rebounds against the Huskies while Sterling Brown tallied 11 points to move within eight of reaching 1,000 for his career. “What I do know about this team is we have a lot of good shooters,” SMU coach Tim Jankovich told reporters. “So on any given night … you never know where the fire might break.”

Oddsmakers currently have the Mustangs listed as 16-point favorites versus the Golden Hurricane, while the game’s total is sitting at 132½.

No. 19 SMU looks to extend its home winning streak to 21 games when it faces Tulsa on Thursday. The surging Mustangs have won 11 consecutive contests overall and are coming off a 69-61 victory against Connecticut on Feb. 25 to take a one-game lead over 20th-ranked Cincinnati in the race for the American Athletic Conference regular-season title.

SMU has won five of the last six meetings with the Golden Hurricane, including a 76-53 victory on Feb. 4, and can clinch at least a share of the conference championship with another win. Tulsa has won back-to-back games for the first time in over a month following a 74-66 victory against East Carolina on Sunday. The Golden Hurricane have dropped their last three road games by an average margin of 20 points, but shocked SMU 82-77 in Dallas last season, and hope lightning strikes twice at Moody Coliseum as they try to halt the fourth longest active home winning streak in the nation. “Facing a top-25 team on the road is a tremendous opportunity for our guys,” Tulsa coach Frank Haith told reporters. “Hopefully we can go to Dallas and play well on Thursday.”

Southern Methodist was a 69-61 winner in its last match on the road against Huskies. They covered the -7.5-point spread as favorites.

Last time out for Tulsa, they were a 74-66 winner as they battled Pirates at home. They covered in the match as a -4.5-point favorite.
