TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Kelvin Lewis scored 21 points to lead Houston 71-63 over Toledo in the team's seventh straight win Saturday night.
Justin Anyijong's jumper gave Toledo a brief lead, 8-7, early in the first half, and it was 12-12 when Aubrey Coleman turned a Houston steal into a dunk with 14:28 left in the half. Houston never relinquished the lead from that point and held a slim lead, 35-30, at the half.
Jonathan Amos added 16 points for Houston (7-1) and Ridley Johnson scored 15.
A Lewis 3-pointer with 12:33 left capped a 10-0 Houston run that changed the tone of the game.
Toledo battled back again but never narrowed Houston's lead to less than 5.
