The SMU men’s basketball team stumbled to new lows last night, scoring only 28 points in their 47-28 loss to UAB.
The point total is the lowest in Conference USA history, topping (?) the 36 point output by UAB in a 2002 game against Southern Miss, according to ESPN. It was the lowest point total for the Mustangs since the inception of the shot clock, and the second lowest since 1950, bested (again, ?) only by a 26-point outburst against TCU in 1956.
A few months back, I questioned how long Matt Doherty could stay on the Hilltop. A performance like this can’t help his case.
