Final Stats

Houston - Senior guard Robert McKiver poured in a game-high 32 points to lead the University of Houston men's basketball team to an 83-68 win over Middle Tennessee Saturday night at Hofheinz Pavilion.

McKiver, who tied his own record of 9 three-point field goals throughout the game, connected on six straight treys during a five minute stretch in the first half to open up a close game.

The Cougars led 12-11 with 9:04 left in the opening period when McKiver began his onslaught and paced a 20-6 run that propelled the Cougars to 43-24 halftime lead.

Houston would never look back as they coasted through the second half for an easy 15-point victory.

In addition to McKiver's 32 points, freshman point guard Zamal Nixon set career-highs of 14 points and seven assists in the contest. Dion Dowell added nine points, four rebounds, three assists and a block despite being limited to 29 minutes due to foul trouble.

Middle Tennessee dominated inside taking a 30-8 scoring advantage in the paint, but the Cougars' three point barrage was too much to overcome. As a team, Houston made a season-high 16 triples and shot a season-best 53% from behind the arc.

Desmond Yates led the Blue Raiders with 21 points - the most individual points scored against the Cougars this year. The sophomore forward shot 9-of-12 from the field and grabbed four rebounds. Junior guard Demetrius Green added 11 points, eight rebounds and four assists.

With the win Houston improved to 7-1 on the season while Middle Tennessee fell to 2-5. The Cougars return to action when they square off with Toledo Tuesday night at Hofheinz Pavilion. The game tips off at 7:00 PM.
