Men's Basketball's Rally Comes Up Short

Nov. 25, 2006

Final Stats

St. Louis - Despite Oliver Lafayette's 24 points and Sam Anderson's 18 points off the bench, the University of Houston could not overcome a 13-0 run by Saint Louis to begin the second half as the Billikens escaped with an 81-78 win at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis Saturday afternoon.

The Cougars fought back despite trailing by as much as 20 points, 71-51, with 7:06 left to play in the game.

Lafayette scored 10 of his points down the stretch and Anderson hit a pair of three-point baskets to help the Cougars close to within three points, 76-73, with 1:29 left to play.

But, the Billikens' Kevin Lisch made three of his four free throws, while Justin Johnson and Tommie Liddell combined for two more to hold off Houston's rally.

Robert McKiver's lay-up with 24 seconds left pulled Houston to within 80-78, but Liddell hit one of his two free throws to make the final score 81-78.

The game began much like the second half started as Saint Louis opened the game with a 14-0 lead before Robert Lee hit a three-point basket with 13:02 left to play in the first half.

The Cougars fought back in the opening period to take a 35-32 lead at halftime as Lafayette and Anderson scored 10 points each, and Lee finished the opening frame with seven points and 12 rebounds.

But, Saint Louis regained the momentum early in the second period as Lisch and Liddell hit back-to-back three-point shots. Then Dwayne Polk scored on a three-point play with a lay-up and a free throw while being fouled by Anderson.

Senior forward Jahmar Thorpe hit a jump shot in the lay for Houston's first points in the opening period.

 

 

The Billikens extended their lead to 20 points, 71-51, before Houston made a valiant comeback try.

Lisch led Saint Louis with 27 points, while Liddell finished with 18 points and senior center Ian Vouyoukas added 16 points and 13 rebounds.

Lee also finished with 13 points and a career-high 17 rebounds, while McKiver added 14 points for the Cougars, who fell to 3-1 this season.

Houston returns home to play host to Prairie View Wednesday night, November 29 in Hofheinz Pavilion.
