SMU at UIC - Boxscore Get Acrobat Reader

CHICAGO (AP) -- Nic Moore scored 20 points and dished out seven assists to lead SMU to a 73-65 win over the University of Illinois-Chicago on Wednesday night. The win was NCAA career win No. 200 for Mustang head coach Larry Brown.

Markus Kennedy added 11 points and seven rebounds for the Mustangs.

SMU (8-2), playing for the fourth time in six days, won its third straight game behind balanced scoring. Ten Mustangs scored in the first half and 11 reached the scoring column for the game. SMU shot 54.2 percent from the floor.

Kelsey Barlow scored a game-high 31 for UIC (3-5). The senior poured in a career-high 38 last Wednesday in a 94-78 victory.

SMU jumped to a 12-0 lead, taking advantage of a rusty UIC team that hadn't played in a week.

The Flames battled back to tie the game three separate times in the second half, but SMU found an answer each time UIC tried to seize momentum. More often than not, Moore was that answer.

Four of Moore's six second-half field goals came with SMU leading by at least two points. Two were 3-pointers.

The undersized Flames also struggled to find an answer for 6-foot-11 Yanick Moreira, who scored the Mustangs' first six points, cleaning up on the offensive glass. Moreira finished with nine points and seven rebounds.

Barlow, coming off a career-high 38 points a week ago in a 94-78 drubbing of Wagner, continued draining shots with ease, but his teammates struggled to follow suit, going 8 for 28 from 3-point range for the game.

The Flames shot 35.7 percent from the floor overall.

SMU is back in action this Saturday, Dec. 7 when the Mustangs host Hofstra. Tipoff is slated for 12:00 p.m. CT. The game will take place at the Dr. Pepper Arena in Frisco, Texas.
