SMU Falls at Home to First-Place UTEP

With a chance to upset the conference-leading University of Texas-El Paso, SMU took a slim lead into halftime but could not catch up with the Miners’ offensive attack after the intermission, resulting in a 62-51 loss Wednesday at Moody Coliseum.

The Mustangs (11-12, 4-5 Conference USA) were led early by senior forward Mouhammad Faye, who scored 11 points and pulled down five rebounds in the first half.

SMU also took advantage of an 8-for-27 shooting performance by UTEP (18-5, 9-1 C-USA) in the first half and went to the locker rooms with a 24-22 halftime lead.

“We had them right where we wanted them,” head coach Matt Doherty said. “I thought our defense broke down significantly in the second half.”

After grabbing more first-half rebounds than UTEP (20-to-13), the Mustangs tailed off in the second half, allowing the Miners a 25-to-10 advantage on the boards.

In addition, UTEP bounced back from a poor first half to shoot 14-for-23 on field goals the rest of the way.

For the Miners, forward Derrick Caracter and guard Randy Culpepper each contributed 12 second-half points and combined to go 8-for-11 from the field.

“We were timid,” Doherty said. “Our guys looked like they were afraid when UTEP stepped it up a notch in the second half.”

Faye led the Mustangs with 19 points and nine rebounds, but he was one of few offensive bright spots for SMU.

Though junior forward Papa Dia scored 11 points (and became the 31st player in school history to collect 500 career rebounds), he and senior guard Derek Williams combined to shoot 6-for-22 on the game.

“I was real disappointed in the lack of leadership from Derek and Papa,” Doherty said. “They’ve had great seasons thus far, but they showed no toughness throughout the game, especially in the second half.”

“If you want to be a big-time player, you’ve got to produce in big-time situations, and they didn’t tonight.”

Williams, whose eight points broke his string of double-digit scoring games at 15, said he takes responsibility for the loss.

“The team needed me to step up,” he said. “We were prepared for it, we just didn’t come out and play hard.”

The Mustangs will now prepare for a quick weekend road trip to the University of Houston (12-11, 4-5 C-USA), where they will match up against the Cougars at 4 p.m. on Saturday.

The team returns home next Wednesday, Feb. 17, to face the Rice Owls (8-15, 1-8 C-USA). Tip off is set for 7 p.m. at Moody Coliseum.
