Posted: Updated:

DALLAS (AP) - Nic Moore and Nick Russell each scored 16 points as SMU rallied from a 10-point first-half deficit to defeat LSU 80-67 on Monday night to advance to the third round of the NIT.

 

The Mustangs (25-9), seeded first in their region, will host the winner of Monday night's late game between No. 2 Arkansas and No. 3 California on Wednesday.

 

LSU (20-14), seeded fifth, finished with its most wins since 2008-09. The Tigers were led by Johnny O'Bryant III with 16 points.

 

An alley-oop pass from Anthony Hickey to Jarell Martin gave the Tigers a 38-28 lead with 3:35 to play in the first half. SMU closed the gap to 40-35 at halftime, and then went on a 26-9 run over the first 8½ minutes of the second half to put the game away.
