Houston Plays Host To Grambling State

Nov. 21, 2006

Houston - The University of Houston will be looking to improve its record to 3-0 when the Cougars play host to Grambling State University on Wednesday night, Nov. 22, at Hofheinz Pavilion. The game tips off at 7:00 p.m.

Fans wishing to attend the Grambling State game and next Wednesday's game against Prairie View A&M can purchase half-price general admission tickets for both games. In addition, UH is offering half-priced tickets for its Nov. 26 women's basketball game against Michigan State.

Houston enters the game with a 2-0 record after winning his home opener, 89-80, against Monmouth last Saturday afternoon. In that game, senior guard Oliver Lafayette scored a season-high 29 points, while Robert McKiver added 25 points and five assists. It marks the first time since 1997-98 that Houston has opened a season with a 2-0 record. The Cougars began the 1997-98 campaign winning their first seven games.

Houston opened the season with a 102-99 overtime victory at Rhode Island on Monday, Nov. 13 as McKiver began his UH career with 33 points. His 33-point performance is the most points any UH player scored in their debut. Lafayette added 20 points, which included a 26-foot three-point field goal in the final second of overtime to give the Cougars the win. Junior guard Marcus Malone also scored 25 points for Houston against the Rams.

Grambling State enters Wednesday night's game with a 1-0 record after beating Texas College, 69-67, in his season-opening game on Nov. 14 at Grambling. The Tigers return three starters from last year's 14-13 team that finished second in the Southwestern Athletic Conference with an 11-7 record. Heading the list of starters is junior guard Andre' Ratliff, who scored 27 points against Texas College. The other returning starters are senior forward Anthony Williams and junior Martez Stevens. Williams tallied six points and nine rebounds against Texas College, while Stevens pulled down three rebounds.

Following the Grambling State game, Houston travels to Saint Louis on Saturday, Nov. 25, before returning home to play host to Prairie View A&M. The Cougars won't play another home game until Dec. 30, when Houston plays host to UNLV.
