Southern Methodist built a huge halftime lead and never looked back, as the Mustangs trounced Stanford 72-49 Monday in non-conference men’s basketball at Moody Coliseum in Dallas.

The Mustangs (9-3 overall) took a 48-19 lead into the locker room, and put Stanford (7-4) away with a balanced scoring attack. Sterling Brown led the SMU scoring parade with 16 points, followed by Semi Ojeleye with 13, Shake Milton with 11 and Ben Moore with 10.

Moore also pulled down nine of the Mustangs’ 36 rebounds.

The Cardinal shot a woeful 21 percent (5 of 24) from the field in the first half, including 1 of 8 behind the arc. SMU, meanwhile, started the game with a 12-0 run, and connected on 19 of 32 field goals (59 percent), including 8 of 19 from 3-point range in the opening 20 minutes.

SMU finished the game with 11 3-pointers.

Stanford trailed by as many as 32 during the game and cut its deficit to 21 twice in the second half.

Marcus Sheffield led Stanford with 13 points, followed by Robert Cartwright with 11 and Reid Travis with 10 points, eight rebounds and two blocked shots.

The Cardinal complete their nonconference schedule on Thursday, when they return home to Maples Pavilion to host Idaho. Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m. PDT.
