Men's Basketball Comeback Falls Short at UAB
Cameron Moore scored 25 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead Alabama-Birmingham to an 80-69 victory over Houston on Wednesday night.


HOUSTON - The University of Houston Men's Basketball program looks to get back on the winning track this weekend when it plays host to Conference USA-rival UAB at 5 p.m., Saturday, inside Hofheinz Pavilion.

The Cougars enter this weekend's game - the finale of a three-game homestand - on the heels of a tough 87-72 loss to league-rival Tulsa on Wednesday night. In that game, sophomore forward TaShawn Thomas finished with 12 points and 13 rebounds for this team-leading eighth double-double this season and the 17th of his career.

Sophomore guard Joseph Young led the team with 16 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, while freshman forward Danuel House - the reigning C-USA Freshman of the Week - added 15 points with five rebounds.

This season, Young leads the Cougars and ranks fourth in the league with 16.9 points per game. The Houston native and Yates High product also tops the league and ranks third nationally with a 93.0 free throw percentage, hitting 24 of his last 25 attempts from the charity stripe.

Thomas ranks sixth in the league with 15.7 points per game but stands second with 10.0 rebounds per contest. The Killeen, Texas, native is one of only three players - joining UCF's Keith Clanton and Tulane's Josh Davis - to rank among the top-six league leaders in both categories and makes Houston the only team with two of the top-six scorers.

House, who has been named C-USA Freshman of the Week three times in 2012-13 - stands third among the Cougars and 14th in the league with 13.7 points per game.


PROMOTIONS
• Head coach James Dickey and members of his staff will wear tennis shoes for Saturday's game for the annual Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers awareness weekend.

With their wardrobe change, Dickey and coaches across the country help raise awareness about cancer and the importance that nutrition and physical activity play in reducing one's risk of the disease. Additionally, this weekend helps promote the American Cancer Society as a place for people facing cancer to turn for free information, day-to-day help, and emotional support.

With that in mind, fans are encouraged to wear sneakers to Saturday's game to show their support for cancer awareness.

• Shasta and Sasha will join other mascots from local businesses in a basketball game at halftime. Participating mascots include Sharky and Nero (both of Houston Aquarium), Sporty (Sports Clips), ChaCha, Shark and Louie, the Bubba Gump Shrimp (all of Landry's) with Miller Girls serving as referees. Children of all ages will certainly enjoy this spectacle.
