All-Tournament Team

  • Kelvin Lewis, Houston (MVP)
  • Aubrey Coleman, Houston
  • Randy Culpepper, UTEP
  • Arnett Moultrie, UTEP
  • Gary Flowers, Southern Miss
  • General Notes

  • This is Houston's first Conference USA Tournament title. UH's last conference tournament title came in 1992 when the Cougars win the Southwest Conference Tournament.
  • The Cougars became the seventh team in C-USA history to win the Conference USA Tournament.
  • The seventh-seeded Cougars are the second-lowest seed to win the C-USA Tournament. Saint Louis was the lowest, winning the 2000 Tourney as a No. 9 seed. In all 15 years of the Conference USA Tournament, an odd numbered seed has won the event.
  • Houston becomes the first school in Conference USA to win a men's basketball championship, a football championship and a baseball championship. The Cougars won football titles in 1996 and 2006, postseason baseball crowns in 1997, 2000 and 2007 and regular season baseball titles in 1999, 2000 and 2002.
  • Houston improved to 12-12 all-time in the Conference USA Tournament and is now 1-1 in the championship game.
  • UTEP dropped to 5-5 all-time in the C-USA Tournament and is now 0-1 in the championship game.
  • UH's victory snaps a six-year streak of the regular season champion winning the C-USA Tournament title.
  • The No.1 overall seed now has an overall record of 7-3 in the championship game.
  • UTEP leads the overall series 10-8.
  • Houston Notes

  • Houston is now 19-15 on the season.
  • UH became the fourth team to win in C-USA history to win four games in four days to claim the tournament title. Marquette (1997), Charlotte (1999) and Saint Louis (2000) are the only other teams to accomplish this feat.
  • The Cougars closed out the game on a 25-8 run and a 13-3 run.
  • Aubrey Coleman finished the Conference USA Tournament with 90 points scored, breaking the previous record set by Saint Louis' Justin Love in 2000 (84). Coleman averaged 22.5 (29-21-27-13) points for the tournament.
  • Houston's 12-made three pointers set the record for most in a title game, which was previously set at 10 by Louisville (2005) and Charlotte (1999).
  • UH had a team-total of 20 assists to break Memphis' previous record of 19 set in 2005 and 2008.
  • Kelvin Lewis broke the Conference USA Tournament Championship Game record for made 3-point field goals with six on 6-of-10 shooting. Lewis had 28 points in the contest and was one shy of tying Marquette's Aaron Hutchins (29) for the most points scored in a C-USA title game set in the inaugural 1996 championship.
  • Lewis (28), Coleman (13) and Zamal Nixon (13) all finished in double figures.
  • Coleman had four steals in the contest which breaks the C-USA Championship game record previously set at three by seven players. He also tallied a game-high six assists and team-high nine rebounds.
  • Coleman also had a game-high six assists and nine rebounds.
  • The Cougars were 46.6 percent from the field on 27-of-58 shooting.
  • Houston held a 29-14 advantage in points off the bench.
  • UTEP Notes

  • UTEP's overall record dropped to 26-6 and snapped its 16-game winning streak, the second-longest in school history. The streak lasted from Jan. 16 to March 13.
  • Randy Culpepper had a team-high 20 points on 8-of-20 shooting.
  • Julyan Stone tied a game-high in rebounds with nine.
  • Culpepper (20), Derrick Caracter (18) and Arnett Moultrie (12) each scored in double figures for the Miners.
