Final Stats

Houston, Texas - Junior guard Andre Owens scored a career-high 41 points to lead the University of Houston to a 70-61 overtime victory over intrastate rival Texas A&M Saturday night in Hofheinz Pavilion.

Owens scored 30 of his points after halftime to spark Houston's comeback from a 31-22 halftime deficit. Owens tied the score at 51-51 with 2:34 left to play in regulation. The Cougars never trailed after that point.

Owens hit two free throws to give Houston a 53-51 lead with 39 seconds left. After Texas A&M's LaKeith Blanks hit one of his two free throws, Owens made two free throws of his own to extend Houston's lead to 55-52.

Texas A&M's Antoine Wright sent the game into overtime when he hit a three-pointer from the left wing with 10 seconds left in regulation.

In the overtime, Owens stole the ball from Acie Law and made a lay-up to put Houston up 57-55. On the Cougars' next possession, sophomore forward Cedrick Hensley put the Cougars up 59-55 on a lay-up after Anwar Ferguson collected his career-high eighth block in the game. It is the third straight game Ferguson has blocked eight shots.

Owens scored his 40th and 41st points on two free throws with three seconds left in the overtime to make the final score, 70-61.

Owens became the first Cougar to score 40 points in a game since Greg Anderson scored 41 points against Arizona State on December 6, 1986. He also became the first player to score 40 points against the Aggies since former Cougar All-American Otis Birdsong scored 43 points against the Aggies in 1977.
