HOUSTON - TCU's J.R. Cadot grabbed his own missed shot and flipped it over his head and into the basket in a last-second attempt to lead TCU to an 81-80 win against the University of Houston men's basketball team Saturday evening inside Hofheinz Pavilion.

The loss spoiled a valiant comeback for the Cougars who trailed by eight with 1:26 remaining but rallied to take the lead with 6.8 ticks left on the clock after freshman point guard J.J. Thompson's driving layup.

The Horned Frogs appeared ready to ice the game with less than a minute in the contest. After a pair of Thompson free throws moved the Cougars to within 78-72, the Horned Frogs raced down the court and attempted to extend their lead on an alley-oop.

However, sophomore forward Alandise Harris blocked the attempt and grabbed the rebound to start the Cougar surge. Harris found redshirt freshman guard Joseph Young in transition, who buried a 3-pointer to move the Cougars to within 78-75 with 44 seconds left.

The Cougars fouled TCU's Kyan Anderson on the ensuing possession, but the Horned Frog made only 1-of-2 attempts. Young again buried another 3-pointer to bring the crowd of 3,357 to its feet and pull the Cougars to within 79-78 with 24 seconds to go.

TCU guard Hank Thorns was fouled on the ensuing possession with 15 seconds to go but missed the front end of the 1-and-1 to keep the Cougars' hopes alive. Junior forward Kirk Van Slyke snared the rebound and hit Thompson on the pass. The Irving, Texas, native raced the length of the court and put the ball up and in to give the Cougars an 80-79 advantage with 6.8 seconds remaining.

Following a TCU timeout, Cadot raced down the court. After missing his first attempt, he grabbed the offensive board and flipped the ball over his shoulder without looking at the basket as the clock wound down. The ball bounced around the rim before falling in.

Officials reviewed the game's final moments on film and confirmed that the shot was good before the clock hit 0.0.

With the loss, the Cougars dropped their second straight game and fell to 3-2. TCU improved to 4-2 overall.

Harris led the Cougars with 16 points and added four rebounds, two assists and three blocked shots. Young finished with 14 points, including four 3-pointers, while freshman forward TaShawn Thomas, junior guard Jonathon Simmons and Thompson each posted 12 points to lead the Cougars.

Thomas also led the Cougars with seven rebounds, while Young finished with a game-high six assists.

Thorns led TCU with 15 points, thanks to three 3-pointers, while Amric Fields added 14 points with a pair of treys. Garlon Green finished with 13 points, Cadot tallied 11 on the night and Anderson totaled 10 for the Horned Frogs.
