ABOUT THE COUGARS
The Cougars claimed a 75-71 win over No. 17/15 UConn on Tuesday night in a New Year's Eve contest inside Hofheinz Pavilion. It was Houston's first win over a nationally ranked opponent since the 2010-11 season.
Junior forward TaShawn Thomas led the Cougars with 23 points and eight rebounds and remains the only player among the league's top-two leaders in both scoring and rebounding. The Killeen, Texas, native broke a 71-71 tie with a pair of free throws with nine seconds remaining and then blocked UConn's game-tying attempt with only four seconds left to seal the win.
Before returning to Hofheinz Pavilion for Tuesday's game against Cincinnati, the Cougars meet American Athletic Conference rival USF at 3 p.m. (CST)/4 p.m. (EST), Saturday, inside the Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla.
