TULSA, Okla. - The University of Houston men's basketball team returns to action this weekend when it faces Conference USA rival Tulsa at 7:05 p.m. inside the Reynolds Center.

The Cougars (11-10 • 3-5 C-USA) look to snap a season-long, four-game losing streak. Despite the recent skid, Houston has had chances to win, holding a second-half lead in each contest. The Cougars have lost those four games by a combined 18 points with no loss by more than eight.

In their most recent loss, the Cougars dropped a 63-62 heartbreaker to Marshall. The Thundering Herd snared a loose ball and banked in a layup with 11 seconds left for the final margin of victory. A desperation heave by senior forward Maurice McNeil was just off the mark.

McNeil posted 16 points with a team-high nine rebounds to lead the Cougars. Freshman forward Alandise Harris added 16 points and went to the free throw line 20 times against the Thundering Herd, becoming only the sixth player in school history to reach that total in a single game.

This season, senior guard Adam Brown leads the Cougars with 14.9 points per game, while McNeil ranks second with 12.7 points and a team-high 8.2 rebounds per contest. McNeil is averaging 17.0 points and 11.0 rebounds per game in the last two contests and fell just one rebound shy against Marshall of recording his second straight double-double.

Saturday's game will be the second time that these two teams have met this season. The Cougars enjoyed a 64-57 win in Hofheinz Pavilion on Jan. 19, snapping a three-game losing streak to the Golden Hurricane.
