SMU 89, Savannah State 46

DALLAS (AP) -- Bryan Hopkins scored 19 points and Donatas
Rackauskas had 12 to lead SMU past Savannah State 89-46 on Monday
night.

Hopkins, SMU's leading scorer last season, also had seven
rebounds in his season debut. The senior had missed the first seven
games for the Mustangs (5-3) because he was academically
ineligible.

The Mustangs shot a school-record 69 percent from the floor and
had five players in double figures. Dez Willingham, Brian Morris
and Brian Epps each scored 11 points.

Javon Randolph scored 14 points and Joseph Flegler had 13 for
Savannah State (1-11), which had just 16 total rebounds.

Hopkins was 7-of-9 from the floor and made four 3-pointers. He
also had three assists and two steals.
