ANCHORAGE, Alaska - For the first time in school history, the University of Houston men's basketball team will compete at the Carrs/Safeway Great Alaska Shootout. The Cougars open their stay at the tournament when they meet No. 25 Oklahoma at 10:30 p.m. (CST)/7:30 p.m. (AST) inside the Sullivan Arena.

Houston (1-1) looks to get back on the winning track after enduring a 112-99 loss at Nevada on Saturday. In that game, senior guard Aubrey Coleman scored a game-high 32 points on 13-of-30 shooting with a team-high seven rebounds, three assists and four steals.

It was Coleman's second straight 30-point game to open the 2009-10 season. He joined Cougar legends Elvin Hayes and Otis Birdsong as the only players in school history to accomplish that feat and recorded the fifth 30-point game of his career.

For his impressive efforts, he was honored Monday as the Conference USA Player of the Week, the third such honor during his collegiate career.

Through the first two games, Coleman leads the Cougars and Conference USA with 32.5 points per game.

Junior guard Adam Brown came off the bench in Saturday's loss to score a career-high 25 points with five 3-pointers and a career-best six steals. The San Antonio, Texas, native scored 12 of his points during a 9-minute run midway through the second half that helped the Cougars trim a 26-point second-half deficit into a six-point gap.

Brown ranks second on the team with 15.5 points per game.


RADIO/TV INFORMATION

ABOUT OKLAHOMA
Oklahoma brings a 2-1 record into this week's tournament but looks to return to the win column after dropping an 82-69 loss at VCU on Saturday. The Sooners also open the tournament at 12:45 a.m. (CST), Thursday), against San Diego.

Willie Warren leads Oklahoma with 15.7 points and 6.7 assists per game and is one of five Sooners averaging double digit points this season. Tiny Gallion ranks third on the team with 12.0 points per game but leads all Sooners with 12.0 rebounds per contest.

Head coach Jeff Capel is in his fourth year at Oklahoma, posting a 71-34 record at the school in that time. In eight years as a head coach, he has tallied a 150-75 career mark.

Capel is 0-1 against Houston in his career with a 62-61 loss during his stint at VCU on Nov. 26, 2005.


SERIES HISTORY vs. OKLAHOMA
For the first time since December 1960, the Cougars will meet Oklahoma on the hardwood. The Sooners own a 1-0 lead in the all-time series after taking a 55-51 win on Dec. 15, 1960, during the Lion's Club Tournament at Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston.

Thursday's game will be the first time the two teams have met on a neutral court.


REGULAR-SEASON TOURNAMENT HISTORY
For the fourth consecutive season, the Cougars will compete in a regular-season tournament. The Cougars have posted a 109-60 (.645) all-time record during regular-season tournaments in their all-time history.

This is the first time that the Cougars have competed at the Carrs/ Safeway Great Alaska Shootout. However, it is not the first time the program has ventured to the northernmost state.

The Cougars competed at the 1999 Top of the World Classic in Fairbanks, Alaska. Houston opened that tournament with a win against host Alaska-Fairbanks before falling to California and wrapping up their stay with a win against George Washington.


UP NEXT
Following Thursday's game against No. 25 Oklahoma, the Cougars meet San Diego at 10:30 p.m. (CST)/7:30 p.m. (AST), Friday in the Sullivan Arena. It will be the first time in school history that the Cougars have faced the Toreros.

The team wraps up its stay Saturday. The Cougars' final-day opponent and game-time will be determined based on the results of their first two games. However, Saturday's game-time possibilities are 5 p.m. (CST)/2 p.m. (AST), 7:30 p.m. (CST)/4:30 p.m. (AST) or 10 p.m. (CST)/7 p.m. (AST).

Fans should stay tuned to UHCougars.com for the team's latest schedule information from the Carrs/Safeway Great Alaska Shootout.
