Henderson and Etou's big second half to leads Tulsa over SMU

TULSA, Okla. (AP) Corey Henderson Jr. scored 18 points and Junior Etou added a double-double with 17 points and 15 rebounds as Tulsa beat SMU 76-67 on Thursday night.

The win moved the Golden Hurricane (12-10, 5-5 American Athletic Conference) into a tie with the Mustangs (15-8, 5-5) in conference play.

Ben Emelogu II scored a career-high 24 points for SMU, which was without leading scorer Shake Milton (right hand injury). Jahmal McMurray added a season-high 22 points for the Mustangs.

Not much separated the two teams in the first half. A 17-5 run midway through the period gave the Golden Hurricane a 28-22 lead, but SMU responded with a 9-2 run of its own - including 7 points in a 5-second span - to close the half with a one point lead.

Henderson and Etou took over in the second half, scoring 15 and 11, respectively. Emelogu found himself in foul trouble in the second half, with all five of his fouls coming after the break, including picking up two quick fouls in the final minute to foul out with his team down by seven points.
