DALLAS (AP) Jimmy Whitt scored 19 points and dished eight assists, leading five players into double-figure scoring as Southern Methodist continued its home court dominance, turning away New Orleans, 79-66 on Wednesday night.
The victory makes the Mustangs 7-0 at home this season and pushes their home win streak to 29 games, the second-longest active streak in the nation. SMU (8-3) rebounded from a 94-83 loss at TCU, its third game against a ranked opponent this season after posting wins over then-No. 14 USC and a 66-60 win over then-No. 2 Arizona at the Battle 4 Atlantis.
