Before the season started, SMU men's basketball coach Rob Lanier said he wouldn't put a timetable on his team. It's Year 1 on the hilltop for Lanier, so he planned to practice patience as he figured out his Mustangs, and they progressively found rhythm on their own. At the six-game mark, though – ahead of tough road game against 4-2 Texas A&M – it's become clear that the SMU is seeing a progression out of sophomore point guard Zhuric Phelps. Phelps leads the Mustangs both in points (18.5 points per game) and assists (17) so far.
