Basketball fans in Dallas know they have a team they can count on to fight to the finish in the Southern Methodist University Mustangs. SMU has earned an invitation to the NCAA tournament on 12 separate occasions and made it to the Sweet Sixteen round of the tournament six times. The Mustangs basketball team has played in one Final Four game and is working hard to produce their first NCAA Championship. The team went through a dark time and struggled for years before legendary basketball coach Larry Brown took over as head coach in 2012. It only took two seasons for Brown to elevate the Mustangs from the bottom of a pack of mediocre teams to national prominence. The team ended the year as the top seed in the National Invitational Tournament and came one win from being crowned the champion of the tournament. Brown's third season with the team resulted in the Mustangs being crowned conference champions for the first time in more than two decades. Current head coach Tim Jankovich will lead the 2019-2020 edition of the SMU Mustangs into battle. Fans of the Mustangs can get their tickets at stubhub.com.
