DALLAS (AP) - Markus Kennedy scored a game-high 18 points to lead SMU to a 71-54 victory over South Florida on Wednesday night.

Shawn Williams added 16 points for SMU (12-4, 2-2 American Athletic Conference).

Zach LeDay led South Florida (10-7, 1-3), with 12 points off the bench.

The Mustangs never trailed, scoring the first 13 points and owned a double-digit lead from four minutes after tipoff for the rest of the game. Their largest lead was 26 late in the second half.

USF played its seventh consecutive game without junior point guard Anthony Collins, a three-year starter sidelined with knee problems.

Kennedy, a 6-foot-9 sophomore transfer who played previously for Villanova, made his second consecutive start since SMU's starting center, 6-11 junior Yanick Moreira, injured his right knee in practice last Thursday.

Kennedy is SMU's second-leading scorer this season despite coming off the bench for the first 14 games.

The Mustangs travel to Orlando, Fla. for their next game against UCF on Saturday, Jan. 18. Tipoff is set for 11:00 a.m. CT. The game will be broadcast on ESPNews.
