The Mustangs won back-to-back victories over the Coppin State Eagles and University of Texas-Arlington Mavericks this week, improving to an eight-game winning streak.

The Mustangs currently stand at 8-1, the team's longest consecutive winning streak since the 2004-05 season.

Thursday night's game against Coppin State posted somewhat of a challenge to SMU, with the Eagles draining several difficult shots to match the Mustangs point for point.

"They weren't making easy shots, they were making tough shots," explained head coach Rhonda Rompola.

The Mustangs held a 36-27 lead at halftime, with sophomore forward Delisha Wills posting 11 points for her team. Wills also had two assists in the first half and six rebounds to help put her team in the lead for the entire first half. SMU gained an early lead over the Eagles, being up by as many as nine points at times, but also falling to just a one-point lead with just over 10 minutes left till the buzzer.
