FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Jalen Jones scored 21 points, including four 3-pointers, and SMU improved to 2-0 under coach Larry Brown with a 64-61 victory at TCU on Thursday night.
Ryan Manuel added 16 points and Nick Russell 12 for the Mustangs, who held on despite missing five free throws in the last 15 seconds.
Brown, the only coach to win both an NBA and an NCAA title, hadn't coached on the college level in 25 years until SMU won its season opener 73-58 over Loyola Marymount on Sunday.
TCU (2-1) played without junior forward Amric Fields, who was hurt only 12 seconds into the game when his right knee buckled awkwardly and he fell to the floor after taking a pass in the lane.
After Fields was helped off the court and to the locker room without putting any weight on his right leg, SMU scored the first five points and never trailed.
The Wizards released their 2018-19 five-game preseason schedule on Tuesday and it looks quite a bit like last year's did.
Once again, they will play the New York Knicks twice, once at home and once on the road. And once again, they will host the Guangzhou Long-Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association.
It all begins on Oct. 1 when the Wizards host the Knicks. Three of their five preseason games will be played at Capital One Arena.
Here is the full preseason schedule:
10/1 vs. Knicks
10/5 vs. Heat
10/8 at Knicks
10/10 at Pistons
10/12 vs. Guangzhou Long-Lions
The preseason schedule release comes on the heels of the full 82-game regular season reveal. That came out last week. You can see it here.

Local artist Taylor Kampa has taken her love for the Washington Capitals and turned it into works of art.
You can find paintings done by Kampa of Alex Ovechkin, Tom Wilson, Nicklas Backstrom, T.J. Oshie, John Carlson and Braden Holtby on display at Circa Chinatown – a restaurant neighboring Capital One Arena – along with other D.C. celebrities.
A professional artist for the last decade, Kampa told NHL.com that the pictures were "passion projects," and took about eight hours to finish. She became a fan of the Caps after she began dating her now-husband back in 2009.
Her work has even caught the eye of The Great Eight. After posting a video to Instagram of her painting Ovechkin hoisting the Stanley Cup, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner liked and commented on it.
"I almost died," Kampa said.
"It has been amazing sharing something that I am excited about that resonates with the people in my city," Kampa said. "I've been painting these portraits for a long time, so it's awesome to have them seen by so many people."
Kampa will also create paintings for the Capitals foundation's annual Casino Night fundraiser next year.
