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.
