    For more than two decades now, SMU's men's basketball program has languished in mediocrity. It saw moderate regular-season success during the Mike Dement era of the late '90s and early '00s but made the postseason only once, and that was a berth in the lowly NIT. Its last trip to the NCAA tournament ... More >>
