Feb. 15, 2008

HOUSTON - The University of Houston men's basketball team looks to return to its winning ways when it plays host to Conference USA rival SMU at 7 p.m., Saturday, at Hofheinz Pavilion.

The Cougars (18-5, 7-2 C-USA) come into the game after a 68-59 setback at No. 1 Memphis on Wednesday. In that game, senior guard Robert McKiver played all 40 minutes and scored a team-high 21 points, including five 3-pointers.

Senior forward Tafari Toney added a career-high 14 points and nine rebounds, while guard DaShaun Williams led the team with a career-high 10 rebounds.

The loss snapped the Cougars' three-game winning streak and was only the program's second loss in the last nine games.

Fans can hear Saturday's game live on 790 AM The Sports Animal with Tom Franklin calling the play-by-play action and Carl Dukes providing color analysis. The pregame show is slated to begin 10 minutes before tip-off.
