HOUSTON -- Robert McKiver scored 35 points and Houston shook off a slow start with a 26-3 run to beat Arkansas-Pine Bluff 76-65 Saturday night on the Guy V. Lewis Court at Hofheinz Pavilion. The victory was Houston's 10th straight win and gives the Cougars an 11-1 record this season.

It was McKiver's third 30-point game this year and his seventh overall in the last two years. It also was two points shy of his career-best 37 point-effort against the College of Charleston earlier this year.

Houston got off to a sluggish start following an 11-day break since their last game against Kentucky on Dec. 18 when the Cougars beat the Wildcats 83-69.

Trailing 27-24 with 4:16 left in the first half, Houston began a 26-3 run over the next eight-and-one-half minutes to jump out to a 50-29 lead with 15:47 left to play.

McKiver and sophomore guard Kelvin Lewis keyed the rally as they combined for 23 of the 26 points. McKiver led the way with 13 points while Lewis scored 10 of his 11 total points in that span.

Houston extended its lead to 67-42 with 6:47 left to play, before Arkansas-Pine Bluff closed the game with a 22-4 run of their own to close to within 71-63 with 1:15 left to play.

But, that was as the Golden Lions could get as McKiver closed out the game making four straight free throws to preserve the win.

Freshman guard Zamal Nixon added 12 points off the bench for the Cougars while Jarvis Gunter led Arkansas-Pine Bluff (4-7) with 15 points and 12 rebounds.

The victory also was Houston's 12th straight victory at home, including a 9-0 mark this season.

The Cougars will leave the friendly confines of Hofheinz Pavilion when Houston travels to UMass for its first true road game of the season. The Cougars only three games away from Guy V. Lewis Court were on Nov. 15-18 in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off tournament.
