Dowell Leads Houston to 73-49 Victory over Southern University

Dec. 8, 2007

Final Stats

Houston - Senior Forward Dion Dowell recorded his second double-double of the season with 24 points and 10 rebounds to lead the University of Houston men's basketball team to a 73-49 win over Southern University Saturday night at Hofheinz Pavilion.

Dowell, who scored 19 of his points in the first half, made six of his first seven shots from the field to help Houston take control with a 28-7 lead in the first 12 minutes of the game. Five of his six field goals were from beyond the three-point arc.

Southern was able to slow Houston's offense down over the next eight minutes when the Jaguars went to a 3-2 zone defense. Kelvin Lewis made Houston's only field goal and Dowell added a pair of free throws during that stretch when the Jaguars used a 10-4 run to close within 32-17. Southern could not get any closer. Houston went into halftime with a 35-20 lead

In the second half, McKiver and Lewis combined for 11 straight points, to help Houston open up a 44-22 lead. The Cougars would never look back.

Struggling to find his shot early in the game, Robert McKiver found a way to make his impression felt on the offensive end, dishing out a season-high seven assists. He finished the game with 15 points, scoring 13 in the second half.

Lewis equaled his career collegiate best with 14 points against Southern. It was the most points he scored as a Cougar. He also scored 14 points last season against Kentucky while playing at Auburn.

Jazz Williams led Southern with 13 points, and was the only player to score in double figures for the Jaguars

With the win, Houston improved to 9-1 on the year while the Jaguars fell to 1-6. The win equaled Houston's best start since the 1991-1992 season.

The Cougars return to action when they host Kentucky on Tuesday, Dec. 18 at Hofheinz Pavilion. The game tips off at 8 p.m. and will be nationally televised on ESPN.
