EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Tyson Jolly had 15 points as SMU narrowly beat Evansville 59-57 on Monday night, a week after the Purple Aces stunned former top-ranked Kentucky.

The Purple Aces led SMU 47-44 with 6:38 remaining until Feron Hunt made a 3-pointer and Jolly added two free throws to put SMU ahead for good. Noah Frederking banked in a 3-pointer, pulling Evansville to 58-57 with 1.7 seconds left but Jolly made 1 of 2 free throws at the other end.

Ethan Chargois had 15 points for SMU (4-0). Isiaha Mike added 11 points.

DeAndre Williams had 13 points for the Purple Aces (3-1). Artur Labinowicz added 12 points. Noah Frederking had 12 points.

SMU plays UNLV on the road on Saturday. Evansville matches up against East Carolina at the Islands of the Bahamas Showcase on Friday.
