HOUSTON (AP) - Dion Dowell scored a career-high 25 points and grabbed five rebounds to lead Houston to an 83-54 win over Morehead State on Friday night in the season opener for both clubs.

Robert McKiver added 19 points for the Cougars, who forced 28 turnovers and registered 12 steals on the defensive end. Dowell and McKiver also combined to make nine of Houston's 11 three-point field goals. Brockeith Pane came of the bench to score 15 points in his collegiate debut.

The Cougars took control of the game early as Dowell and McKiver combined to make five three-point field goals, and Houston forced six turnovers by Morehead State to take a 15-1 lead in the first three and one-half minutes of the game.

Houston held a 24-10 lead with 9:37 remaining in the first half after Dowell drove from the right wing for a lay-up and then came back to nail another trey on Houston's next possession.

The Cougars extended their lead to 43-23 with 1:40 left in the opening period after Marcus Malone hit a jump shot in the line. After Demonte Harper hit a three-point shot for Morehead State, Nick Mosley grabbed his own missed shot and hit a jump hook in front of the rim to give the Cougars a 45-26 lead. Both teams exchanged three-point field goals to close the half as Jamyron Steward hit one for the Eagles and Brockeith Pane hit one for the Cougars with one second on the clock to give Houston a 48-29 lead at halftime.

In the second half, McKiver scored 10 of his points and Dowell made three of his four free throws in the first six minutes to extend their lead to 61-38. After Marcus Cousin added a lay-up, McKiver made three free throws to extend Houston's lead to 26 points, 66-40 with 11:58 left to play.

Houston's biggest lead of 31 points came with 56 seconds left play when DaShaun Williams scored a lay-up to give the Cougars an 83-52 lead. Morehead's T.J. Clark closed out the scoring with a lay-up with 35 seconds remaining as Houston held the ball during the final seconds

The Eagles had just two players reach double digits as Demonte Harper and Jamyron Steward scored 12 and 11 points, respectively.
