    Marcus Malone added 17 points and Kelvin Lewis had 11 for the Cougars (21-6, 10-3 Conference USA). Tafari Toney had 12 rebounds for Houston.

    Craig Craft came off the bench to lead Southern Miss (15-12, 7-6) with 16 points. Courtney Beasley and Andre Stephens each had 14 points.

    The Cougars used a 17-6 run, including 16 straight points by McKiver, to take a 26-13 lead midway through the first half.
