    NEW YORK (AP) -

    TaShawn Thomas had 22 points and 14 rebounds for the Cougars (5-1), who shot 37.5 percent in the second half (12 of 32) and fell to the Stanford, 86-76.

    Houston turned up the aggressiveness on defense and was able to get within five points four times over the final 3:49, the last time at 77-72 but Stanford had an answer each time to extend the lead.

    Danuel House had 15 points for Houston and L.J. Rose added 14.

    Houston coach James Dickey will face Texas Tech, a school he coached from 1991-92 until 2000-01 and led to the NCAA tournament twice, for the first time.

    Josh Huestis had 13 points and 13 rebounds for Stanford, which shot 66.7 percent from the field (18 of 27) from the field in the second half breaking from a 32-32 halftime tie.

    The Cardinal (5-1) will play Pittsburgh, which beat Texas Tech 76-53, in the championship game on Tuesday night at Barclays Center.

    Stanford took control in the second half by making nine of its first 13 shots from the field, taking a 53-46 lead with the last two baskets coming on dunks by Huestis and Powell.
