HOUSTON - The University of Houston men's basketball team begins the year 2012 with the start of Conference USA play when it meets Tulsa at 7 p.m., Wednesday, inside Hofheinz Pavilion.

Winners of their last four games and their last five home contests, the Cougars (8-5) enter Wednesday's game on the heels of a dominating 94-71 win against Texas State on Friday inside Hofheinz Pavilion. That was the program's highest point total under second-year head coach James Dickey and the team's most points since a 105-81 win against TCU on Dec. 23, 2009.

Against Texas State, the Cougars raced out to a 25-4 lead midway through the first half and never looked back in avenging a road loss to the Bobcats earlier this season. Texas State rallied to move to within four in the second half, but Houston used a 19-4 run to ice the win.

Redshirt freshman guard Joseph Young led all players with 25 points on 9-of-12 shooting with a career-high-tying four 3-pointers against the Bobcats. Sophomore forward Alandise Harris added 17 points, while freshman forward TaShawn Thomas posted career bests with 16 points and 16 rebounds.

For his impressive performance, Thomas was honored Monday as the Conference USA Freshman of the Week for the second time this season.

This season, junior guard Jonathon Simmons continues to lead the Cougars with 15.7 points per game, while Harris ranks second at 14.3 points. With last weekend's outing, Young moved into third place among the Cougars with 11.4 points game.

Thomas stands fourth on the team with 10.5 points per game but adds a team-high 8.8 rebounds per contest to stand seventh in the league.

Wednesday's game will be the end of a season-long, five game homestand for the Cougars. The Cougars have posted a 4-0 record on the stand to improve to 7-3 in front of the hometown fans this season.
