No. 15 SMU rallies to stay undefeated, 59-57 over Cincinnati

DALLAS (AP) -- Jordan Tolbert tipped in Nic Moore's missed shot for the go-ahead score with 28 seconds left and then had a big block as No. 15 SMU rallied to remain undefeated with a 59-57 victory over Cincinnati on Thursday night.
 
The short-handed Mustangs (14-0, 3-0 American Athletic Conference), off to the best start in school history, overcame a seven-point deficit in the final 3 1/2 minutes.
 
Moore finished with 14 points. He had two 3-pointers in the game-ending 11-2 run for SMU, which along with No. 22 South Carolina (14-0) are the only undefeated Division I teams.
 
But when Moore missed, Tolbert followed up to put the Mustangs ahead and then blocked Troy Caupain's shot at the other end. Ben Moore made a free throw with 8 seconds left before Farad Cobb missed a go-ahead 3-pointer on the last shot for Cincinnati (11-5, 1-2).
