The biggest reason for their recent success, specifically in the past two games (despite playing creampuffs), is that the scoring is coming from all corners.
Papa Dia, who's had the task of carrying the team early on in the season, finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds, giving him four double-doubles on the season and 17 in his career.
Mike Walker scored a season-high 15 points, hitting three 3-point field goals, which moves him into a tie at 11th place on SMU's all-time three-point FG list (103).
-Josh Harvey- Rodney Clinkscales contributed, as well, scoring 16 points - the fifth time he has scored 10 or more points this season.
The aforementioned Nyakundi finished with 15 points, doing most of his damage from behind-the-arc. He hit four 3-point field goals, moving ahead of Jemeil Rich into 7th place on SMU's all-time three-point FG list (121). Aside from putting the ball through the net, Nyakundi finished second on the team with seven rebounds.
SMU will play host to Ole Miss (10-3), who play Southeastern tomorrow, on January 7th.
