Men[s Basketball Plays Host To UTEP Saturday Night

March 2, 2007

Houston - The University of Houston men's basketball team will close out the regular season when the Cougars play host to the UTEP Miners in a Conference USA game that tips off at 7:00 p.m. Saturday night, Mar. 3, in Hofheinz Pavilion.

Houston enters the game with a 15-14 record this season after suffering a hard-fought 75-72 overtime loss at UCF last Wednesday night. The Cougars have a 9-6 record C-USA record and enter the game in third place. A victory over the Miners would give the Cougars a school record, 10 C-USA wins and clinch third place seeding in next week's Conference USA Tournament in Memphis.

UTEP enters the game with a 14-15 overall record, and the Miners have a 6-9 C-USA record after suffering a 78-67 loss against sixth-ranked Memphis last Thursday night in El Paso.

Prior to the game, Houston will honor its three senior members of the 2006-07 team. They are Oliver Lafayette, Jahmar Thorpe and Richard Young. Lafayette and Thorpe have played instrumental roles in Houston's success during each of the past two seasons.

Lafayette was a 2005-06 All-Conference USA Second-Team selection after averaging 15.7 points and setting a league and school records for most steals per game with 3.39 per game. This season, he is averaging 14.6 points, 6.1 rebouunds and leads C-USA in steals with 2.5 per game.

Thorpe is averaging 11.0 points and 6.2 rebounds per game while shooting 54 percent from the field and 78 percent at the free throw line. He also ranks among the top 10 C-USA leaders in steals with a 1.5 average.

The Athletics Department has a Three for All promotion Saturday in which Cougar fans can watch Houston's baseball team play Northwestern State at 1:00 p.m., attend the annual H Association Barbeque at 4:30 and watch the Cougars play against UTEP at 7:00 p.m. for just $20.
