The Mustangs fought the Houston Cougars in a tooth-and-nail battle on the court in Moody Coliseum Saturday afternoon, resulting in a thrilling game: a Mustang win of 53-50, and a lot of praise for the courtside hustle of 6’1” SMU forward, Chantae Embry.

“Number 33 [Embry] did really good, she was on fire today,” said basketball game spectator Robin Johnson.

The game began with an impressive Cougar lead, with Houston ahead of the Mustangs 17-11 at the end of the first quarter.

Though the Mustangs struggled with shooting and defensive maneuvers in the first two quarters, many star players allowed the team to remain strong against Houston.
