HOUSTON - Fresh off another thrilling win in overtime, the University of Houston men's basketball team returns to Hofheinz Pavilion when it meets Nevada at 7 p.m., Monday.

This will be the first of four home games in a five-game stretch on the Cougars' schedule. Following Monday's game, the Cougars will play host to UTSA (Saturday), Sam Houston State (Dec. 21) and Rogers State (Dec. 30).

The Cougars (5-3) enter Monday's game on the heels of a thrilling 75-71 overtime win at Sam Houston State on Saturday afternoon. It was the finale of a season-long three-game road swing for the Cougars.

In a game that went back and forth at the end of regulation, the Cougars used clutch shooting at the free throw line and steady defense throughout to take the win against the Bearkats.

Freshman forward Kendrick Washington recorded the first double-double and 20-point game of his career with 21 points and 11 rebounds, both career highs. With the score tied late in regulation, the Shreveport, La., native scooped up a loose ball rolling around in the Cougar frontcourt and laid it up as the shot clock expired to give Houston a 63-61 lead with less than a minute remaining.

Washington went on to hit the Cougars' first bucket in overtime and converted 1-of-2 free throws before fouling out midway through the extra period.

Senior guard Zamal Nixon added 14 points, while senior guard Adam Brown nearly completed a triple-double with seven points, eight rebounds and a career-high 10 assists.

With his performance last weekend, Washington moved into second on the team with 12.8 points per game and continues to rank second with 6.3 rebounds per game. Brown tops the Cougars with 14.4 points per game and leads Conference USA with a 54.5 3-point field goal percentage.

ABOUT NEVADA
Nevada brings a 1-6 record into Monday's game after suffering an 82-70 loss to UNLV in Reno, Nev., on Saturday night. It was the Wolf Pack's sixth straight loss after opening the season with an 81-66 home win against Montana.

Against UNLV, forward Malik Story and guard Deonte Burton paced the Wolf Pack with 15 points apiece, while forward Dario Hunt added 14 points and 13 rebounds.

This season, Hunt leads Nevada with 12.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. Story stands second with 11.4 points per contest, while Burton is tops with 4.0 assists per game.

Head coach David Carter is in his second year at Nevada and has posted a 22-19 (.537) career record. He is 1-0 against Houston.


SERIES HISTORY vs. NEVADA
This will be the second straight season that Houston has faced Nevada on the hardwood. Nevada enjoyed a 112-99 win against the Cougars in Reno, Nev., on Nov. 21, 2009, snapping a four-game losing streak to the Cougars.

Houston owns a 7-2 (.778) lead in the all-time series, which began on Dec. 22, 1973, in Reno.

The series has not been a close one with only two of the nine games being decided by 12 points or fewer. The average margin of Houston victory is 19.3 points per game, while Nevada has won by an average of 8.5 points per game.

The Cougars own a 4-1 lead in the all-time series against Nevada in Houston and have won last two games in Hofheinz Pavilion. Only a 77-73 Nevada win on Nov. 27, 1978, prevents a perfect Houston home record.


UP NEXT
The Cougars continue their homestand when they play host to UTSA at 6 p.m., Saturday, in Hofheinz Pavilion. That game also will be televised live on CSS.

From there, the Cougars will hit the road to meet Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at 7 p.m., Dec. 18, in Corpus Christi, Texas.

All Houston men's basketball games can be heard live on SportsTalk 790 AM KBME with Tom Franklin calling the play-by-play action and Cougar legend Elvin Hayes serving as an analyst. The pregame show begins 15 minutes before tip-off.
