Houston Comes Back to Defeat Chicago State, 71-65, in Overtime

Dec. 23, 2003

Box Score

Junior guard Andre Owens used some timely shooting in the second half to lead the University of Houston to a 71-65 overtime victory over Chicago State in Hofheinz Pavilion Tuesday night.

Owens scored 12 of his game-high 22 points in the second half and followed with four more points in the overtime period as the Cougars overcame a 15-point deficit in the first half.

Houston shot a season-low 30 percent in the first half as Chicago State opened up a 30-15 lead with 3:18 left before halftime. But, Owens scored a lay-up off an offensive rebound and Ramon Dyer nailed a three-point basket with two seconds left in the opening period to pull the Cougars to within 30-22 at halftime.

In the second half, Houston closed to within seven points (36-29) with 16:47 when Owens canned a trey of his own.

After Royce Parran hit a three pointer to put Chicago State up 41-33, Anwar Ferguson scored a three-point play the old fashioned way as he made a jumper in the lane and hit his free throw to pull Houston to within 41-36 with 14:02 left.

Ferguson tied the scored on a reverse slam dunk with 2:14 left to play when Owens found him wide open in the middle of the lane. Houston took a 59-55 lead with 25 seconds left to play, but Tony Weeden hit a three-point shot from the top of the key. After Marcus Oliver hit one of his two free throws, Royce Parran hit a jumper to tie the score at 60-60 and send the game into overtime.

Craig Franklin, who led Chicago State with 22 points, hit a lay-up to put Chicago State up 62-60 with 4:23 left to play, but Owens hit two free throws on Houston's next possession and Oliver hit a jumper in the lane with 3:31 left to give the Cougars a 64-62 lead. Houston never trailed again and went on to win the game, 71-65.

 

 

The victory improved Houston's overall record to 4-3 and the Cougars won their third straight game overall and fourth straight contest in Hofheinz Pavilion.

In addition to Owens netting 22 points, Oliver scored 17 points and Brian Shelton came off the bench to add 10. Ferguson had six points, eight rebounds and posted a career-high eight blocked shots for the second game in a row.

Houston will return from its Christmas Holiday and play host to intrastate rival Texas A&M on Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. in Hofheinz Pavilion. It will be the first time the Cougars have played against the Aggies since both schools were members of the Southwest Conference in 1995-96.
