HOUSTON - The University of Houston Men's Basketball program looks to get back on the winning track this weekend when it plays host to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at 7 p.m., Saturday, inside Hofheinz Pavilion.

The Cougars (5-2) won their first five games to open the season before falling earlier this week in back-to-back games against Pac-12 member Stanford and Big 12 foe Texas Tech during the Progressive Legends Classic Championship Rounds inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

In Houston's last outing, junior forward TaShawn Thomas posted 18 points with six rebounds, three blocks and a pair of steals to lead the Cougars in a 76-64 loss to Texas Tech. After posting double-doubles in consecutive games against Lehigh, Howard and Stanford, the Killeen, Texas, native was named to the Progressive Legends Classic All-Tournament Team.

With 17.7 points and 12.0 rebounds per game, Thomas is the only player in the American Athletic Conference to average a double-double for the season and is ranked among the league's top-five leaders in both categories.

Sophomore guard Danuel House is averaging 17.3 points per game to rank second among the Cougars and sixth in The American, making Houston the only team in the league with two scoring leaders to rank that high.

Sophomore point guard L.J. Rose has made an immediate impact in his first season with the Cougars, averaging 12.5 points per game and 5.5 assists per game to stand second in the league in the latter category.

Saturday will be a busy day for Houston Basketball inside Hofheinz Pavilion. In addition to the Men's game, the Houston Women's team plays host to the David Jones Memorial Classic earlier in the day.

In the first game of the day, Stephen F. Austin faces Prairie View A&M at noon, with the Houston Women's team squaring off against Kent State at 2:30 p.m., Saturday.
