Cougars Fall To Green Wave, 65-58

Feb 5, 2003

Final Stats

HOUSTON (AP) - Watari Marsh scored 18 points and handed out a game-high four assists and Tulane used a tough man-to-man defense to hand Houston a 65-58 loss in a Conference USA game at Hofheinz Pavilion.

The Cougars entered the game with a three-game winning streak and had won four of its last five games. However, the Green Wave's strong defensive effort never allowed Houston to get untracked.

"This was our best halfcourt defense of the season," Tulane head coach Shawn Finney said. "We wanted to trap Louis Truscott big on big make him throw it out of the post. We put Wayne Tinsley on Andre Owens and they did a great job."

The Green Wave's double-teaming defense held Truscott to a single figures for the first time this season as he finished the game with eight points and a game-high 10 rebounds.

"They were pushing me and trying to get me as far away from the goal as possible," Truscott said. "When I caught the ball, they double-teamed me and I had to kick it out."

To complicate matters, Houston finished just 4-17 from the three-point line. Owens also was held to a season-low four points as he finished the game shooting just 2-12 from the field, including 0-7 from the thee-point line.

"Our ball movement wasn't very good," Houston head coach Ray McCallum said. "Andre has been in such a rhythm. He's one of our best three-point shooters. We just didn't move our bodies tonight."

Jarrett Sidney led Houston with 11 points and Cedrick Hensley came off the bench to score 10 points. They were the only Cougars in double figures.

In addition to Marsh's 18 points, Marcus Kinzer finished with 12 points and Tinsley added 10 points to his strong defense. Tulane improves to 10-10 overall this season and 3-4 in Conference USA play.

 

 

The loss drops Houston into a three-way tie for the National Division lead in Conference USA with a 4-3 record. The Cougars fall to 6-12 overall.

Houston will play fourth-ranked Louisville on Saturday, February 8 at 8:00 p.m. in Hofheinz Pavilion. UH will pay tribute to former UH head coach and standout player, Guy V. Lewis, in a half-time ceremony. The first 3,000 fans to attend the game will also receive a Guy V. Lewis bobblehead doll.
