IRVING, Texas -
Senior Alisha Filmore made six free throws in the final 1:09 to finish with 16 points and lead SMU to a 67-63 win over North Texas Thursday night in Moody Coliseum. The Mustangs scored 18 points in the last 5:09 to outlast North Texas and improve to 3-0 on the season, while the Mean Green fell to 0-2.
In a game that was body blow after body blow and included 43 fouls, the Mustangs delivered the final blow down the stretch, taking a six-point lead, 61-55 with 1:33 left in the game, after Korina Baker hit a fast break layup to cap off a 5-0 SMU run in just under a minute.
After Gabrielle Wilkins hit a free throw with 2:27 left to give SMU a two-point lead, Baker came down with a rebound amidst a crowd of North Texas players after Alexis Hyder missed a contested jumper. The transfer guard found a sprinting Filmore for the fast break layup. On the next possession, Akil Simpson stole a pass and hit Baker for the layup to put SMU up six with a minute and a half to play.
The Mustangs shot 54.2 percent from the field in the second half, and went 13 of 21 from the free throw line, out-scoring North Texas 39-34 in the final 20 minutes to take the win in their third game in six days. Filmore scored 12 of her 16 points in the second half, and Wilkins, playing in her first game as a freshman, scored eight points in the final 20 minutes and finished with 11.
