    HOUSTON - Storm Warren hit a pair of free throws with 1.2 seconds remaining to lift LSU to a 59-58 win against the University of Houston men's basketball team Tuesday evening inside Hofheinz Pavilion.

    LSU held a 57-56 held on Ralston Turner's 3-pointer with 2:23 remaining and nearly maintained that advantage for the rest of the game. With 36 seconds remaining, Houston sophomore forward Alandise Harris' jumper was off, but freshman forward TaShawn Thomas grabbed a key offensive board to reset the Cougar offense.

    After an LSU foul on the floor, junior guard Jonathon Simmons hit a running leaner with 9.1 seconds left to give the Cougars a 58-57 lead.

    Following an LSU timeout, Anthony Hickey raced the length of the court and put up a shot that was off the mark. Warren grabbed the offensive rebound and went up but was fouled by Thomas with just 1.2 seconds left.

    With neither team having any timeouts remaining and a season-high 4,257 fans on their feet, Warren stepped to the line and hit both free throws to give the Tigers a 58-57 lead. The Cougars tried a desperation attempt at the buzzer, but freshman point guard J.J. Thompson's halfcourt shot was off the mark.

    It was the Cougars' second straight, heartbreaking 1-point setback during the last four days. TCU escaped with an 81-80 win on Saturday on a last-second, over-the-shoulder shot.

    Houston fell to 3-3 overall and have lost those three games by a combined four points. LSU improved to 4-3.

    Harris tied his career high with 21 points and posted his team-leading third 20-point game of the season. Thomas finished with 13 points on 6-of-7 shooting and grabbed a team-high eight rebounds in the loss.

    LSU guard Andre Stringer led the Tigers with 13 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, while Turner and Warren each added 12. Justin Hamilton finished with 11 points and tied with Johnny O'Bryant III for team-high honors with seven rebounds.
