HOUSTON - University of Houston sophomore point guard J.J. Thompson scored a career-high 16 points, but it would not be quite enough as Texas A&M claimed a 70-58 win against the Cougars on Saturday evening inside Hofheinz Pavilion.

Thompson, an Irving, Texas, native and product of Irving High, connected on 5-of-10 shots from the field with three 3-pointers and dished out a team-high three assists. He topped his previous best of 15 points against Tulsa on Jan. 4, 2012.

In the first meeting between the two schools since Dec. 29, 2004, the Aggies built a 42-24 lead and never looked back in winning their second straight game against the Cougars. Texas A&M scored the first six points of the game and closed out the first half on a 12-0 run to build a 42-24 lead at the break.

The Cougars fought back in the second half, outscoring the Aggies 35-28, and moved to within eight points on three occasions. However, Texas A&M answered each time to thwart any Cougar rally.

Redshirt freshman guard Jherrod Stiggers finished with 11 points off three 3-pointers off the bench, while freshman forward Danuel House added 10 points and a game-high six rebounds in the loss.

Texas A&M guard Elston Turner led all players with 26 points, including four 3-pointers, while forwards Kourtney Roberson and Ray Turner added 14 points apiece.


NOTES
• Sophomore forward TaShawn Thomas made the 37th consecutive start of his collegiate career... The Killeen, Texas, native has started every game of his Cougar career.
• Senior forward Leon Gibson made his fourth start of the season.
• Cougars and Aggies played in front of a season-high 6,423 fans inside Hofheinz Pavilion, thanks to a great student turnout.

UP NEXT
The Cougars hit the road to face TCU at 8 p.m., Tuesday, inside Daniel-Meyer Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas. That game will be televised live on FOX Sports Southwest.

From there, Houston returns to the friendly confines of Hofheinz Pavilion when they meet Texas Southern at 5 p.m., Dec. 8. That game will be the start of a season-long, six-game homestand for the Cougars.
