DALLAS, TX (KLTV) -

In the NCAA tournament for the second time in three seasons, SMU enters the big dance as the number six seed in the East region. The Mustangs will open against USC on Friday afternoon in Tulsa. SMU is looking to get out of the first round for the first time since 1988. The program was one and done in both 2015 and 1993.

The American Athletic Conference regular season and tournament champions are red hot, having won 16 straight games and 26 of the last 27.

And keep in mind, SMU normally only plays six guys during games.
