HOUSTON - Senior guard Robert McKiver scored a game-high 21 points with six 3-pointers to lead the University of Houston men's basketball team's long-range attack during a 69-47 win over Conference USA rival SMU on Saturday at Hofheinz Pavilion.

McKiver connected on 6-of-11 shots from behind the arc and was one of seven Cougars to record at least one trey in the contest. It was the New Haven, Conn., native's sixth straight 20-point performance, dating back to Jan. 30 against No. 1 Memphis.

The Cougars set a Hofheinz Pavilion record with 43 3-point attempts - topping the previous best of 40 set against South Alabama in 2007 and against Southern earlier this season - and fell one short of the record for 3-pointers made, connecting on 18.

Sophomore guard Kelvin Lewis and senior guard Marcus Malone each posted three 3-pointers, while freshmen guard DaShaun Williams and Zamal Nixon nailed a pair of treys.

Lewis finished with 11 points, while senior forward Dion Dowell added a game-high eight rebounds. McKiver also topped all players with seven assists.

With the win, the Cougars improved to 19-5 overall and 8-2 in C-USA play. UH also enjoyed its fifth straight win over the Mustangs. SMU dropped to 8-15 overall and 2-8 in C-USA play.

The Cougars raced out to a 17-4 lead through the game's first eight-and-a-half minutes and never trailed in the game. SMU pulled to within nine at 23-14 when Derrick Roberts hit a 3-pointer at the 8:28 mark. But the Cougars went on an 18-4 run to close out the first half and were never threatened again.

Meanwhile, the Cougar defense bared its claws, limiting the Mustangs to only eight field goals on 27.6 percent shooting from the field during the first 20 minutes.

The Cougars return to action at 7 p.m., Wednesday when they face C-USA rival UAB in Birmingham, Ala. Fans can hear the game live on 790 AM The Sports Animal with Tom Franklin calling the play-by-play action and Carl Dukes providing color analysis.
