No. 24 SMU loses final game 61-54 to cold-shooting Cincy

CINCINNATI (AP) SMU's tough season ended with one of its ugliest losses.

The 24th-ranked Mustangs couldn't overcome their turnovers or take advantage of Cincinnati's cold shooting, falling 61-54 on Sunday.

It was a final disappointment for SMU (25-5, 13-5 American Athletic), which is banned from postseason play because of NCAA rules violations. Players embraced on the court after the final buzzer.
