HOUSTON - Making his collegiate debut, University of Houston redshirt freshman Joseph Young scored 26 points with five 3-pointers to lead five Cougars in double digits during a 118-70 exhibition win against Concordia University on Tuesday evening inside Hofheinz Pavilion.

In addition to Young, junior guard Jonathon Simmons came off the bench to pour in 21 points on 9-of-11 shoot with several electrifying dunks. The Houston native nearly finished with a quadruple double, adding eight rebounds, a team-high nine assists and five steals in only 26 minutes.

Sophomore forward Alandise Harris added 17 points and six rebounds. Freshman forward TaShawn Thomas posted a double-double with 14 points and a game-high 10 rebounds, while senior guard Darian Thibodeaux added 14 points with four treys of his own.

The Cougars used hot shooting throughout the game to record their first 100-point performance since a 105-81 home victory against TCU on Dec. 23, 2009. After hitting 63.2 percent from the field in the first half, Houston continued that hot streak at 60.6 percent during the final 20 minutes. The Cougars finished at 62.0 percent (44-of-71) for the game.

Houston also outrebounded the Tornados 53-30 in the game.

"We played hard, and we cheered for one another," said head coach James Dickey, who begins his second season with the Cougars. "When guys got an opportunity to play they did some good things."

Concordia jumped ahead of the Cougars early and grabbed a 10-9 lead on Darius Anderson's 3-pointer with 15:21 remaining in the opening period. However, the Cougars used 19-7 run during the next five-and-a-half minutes and never led by fewer than nine points the rest of the way.

The Cougars brought the crowd to their feet early and often with some thunderous dunks with Simmons leading the way. Houston finished the contest with 10 dunks on the night, including eight in the first half alone.

Anderson led Concordia with 20 points on 9-of-20 shooting with a pair of 3-pointers and added a team-high four rebounds. Larry Durand added 10 points as the only other Tornado to reach double digits.

From there, the team continues their homestand when they meet Utah Valley at 7 p.m., Monday inside Hofheinz Pavilion.
