    SMU guard Justin Isham stole the ball from Michael Marshall with 4 seconds left in the game and was fouled with the Mustangs leading 61-59, Isham hit the second of his two free throws to give SMU a three-point lead.

    Texas Tech's Robert Tomaszek's potential game-tying 3-pointer as time expired hit the front of the rim.
