HOUSTON - Senior center Marcus Cousin scored 17 points and grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds for his second double-double this season to lead the University of Houston men's basketball team to a 110-57 win over Alcorn State on Tuesday inside Hofheinz Pavilion.

Cousin was part of a Cougar offensive explosion that hit 50 percent of its 74 shots from the field, saw four players reach double digits and all but two players score at least two points. Junior guard Aubrey Coleman posted 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the field, increasing his scoring total for the fourth straight game.

Junior guard Kelvin Lewis led all players with 23 points, including four treys, while freshman point guard Desmond Wade posted 14 points and fell just one assist shy of the first double-double of his young career. In addition, the Linden, N.J. native committed only one turnover as the Cougars won their third straight game.

Despite the high-octane offense, the Cougar offense remained efficient, committing a season-low five turnovers. UH did not give the ball away to the Braves until the 12:46 mark of the second half with no player recording more than one turnover in the game.

It was the first time the Cougars reached the century mark in points since a 101-54 win over Prairie View A&M on Nov. 29, 2006, and the most points scored since UH opened the season with a 131-62 win over Florida Tech on Nov. 22, 2005.

The Braves stayed with the Cougars through the game's first 10 minutes, pulling to within 29-25 on JaMarkus Holt's layup at the 9:13 mark. However, the Cougars took off on a 24-7 run over the next six-and-a-half minutes to build a 53-32 advantage and would never lead by fewer than 19 points the rest of the way.

Taking a 59-36 lead into the locker room at halftime, the Cougars kept the pressure on the Braves, opening the second half on a 22-8 run through the first seven minutes. In addition, UH limited Alcorn State to only eight second-half field goals and to 34.3 percent from the field in the final 20 minutes.

Jarvis Williams scored 15 points to lead Alcorn State, while Troy Jackson finished with 11 points. Anthony Ford led the Braves with eight rebounds.

The Cougars now will take nearly two weeks off before returning to action at 7 p.m., Nov. 29 when they wrap up their season-long, three-game homestand against North Texas inside at Hofheinz Pavilion. Fans can hear the game live on 790 AM The Sports Animal with Tom Franklin calling the play-by-play action and Willis Wilson serving as analyst. The pregame show is slated to begin at 6:45 p.m. (CST).
