SMU 69, UALR 63


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - London Giles scored 19 points, including one of SMU's three 3-pointers in overtime, as the Mustangs beat Arkansas-Little Rock 69-63 on Sunday.

Giles' 3-pointer with 2:48 left in OT put SMU ahead for good, 59-58, and Robert Nyakundi added two more 3-pointers for the Mustangs, who didn't miss a shot from the field in the overtime period.

Nyakundi finished with 15 points and Jeremiah Samarrippas added 12 points and six assists for SMU (5-3).

D'Andre Williams scored 21 and Will Neighbour 15 for Little Rock (2-6), which lost its fifth straight game. The Trojans scored the final five points of regulation - on a 3-pointer by Neighbour and a jumper by Williams with 1:07 left - to force the extra period.

Little Rock used a 17-0 run in the early going to take a 19-5 lead, and was up 30-24 at halftime. But Williams hit two 3-pointers early in the second half to spark an 11-0 run that put SMU back on top 35-32.
