HOUSTON - Winners of its last eight home games, the University of Houston men's basketball team continues a busy month at home when it plays host to UTSA at 6 p.m., Saturday, inside Hofheinz Pavilion.

The Cougars (6-3) enter this weekend's game after an exciting 64-61 home win against Nevada on Monday. Against the Wolf Pack, sophomore forward Kendrick Washington came off the bench to score 17 points and grabbed six rebounds with a pair of assists.

With that performance, Washington moved into second place among the Cougars with 13.4 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. The Shreveport, La., native ranks among the Conference USA top-15 individual leaders in scoring, rebounding and field goal percentage. Seniors Maurice McNeil (11-11) and Adam Brown (10-10) each recorded double-doubles against Nevada to lead the Cougars to the win. It was McNeil's team-leading fourth double-double of the season and the first of Brown's career.

Brown leads the Cougars with 13.9 points per game and is the only Cougar to enjoy double-digit performances in points, rebounds and assists this season. McNeil is tops with 6.3 rebounds per contest, good enough to rank fourth in the latest league statistical rankings.

The Cougars close out the month with home games against Sam Houston State (Dec. 21) and Rogers State (Dec. 30).

ABOUT UTSA
UTSA enters this weekend's game with a 5-2 overall record and has won four of its last five games. Only an 82-75 loss at UC Riverside prevents a longer UTSA winning streak.

The Roadrunners enter this weekend's game on the heels of an 86-81 win at Pepperdine on Saturday. Against Pepperdine, senior guard Devin Gibson led UTSA with 24 points, while freshman forward Jeromie Hill finished with 17 points and a game-high eight rebounds. Sophomore guard Melvin Johnson III came off the bench to score 12 points with three 3-pointers.

Gibson is one of three Roadrunners averaging at least 14 points per game, posting a team high 17.1 points per contest. Hill ranks second with 14.6 points but tops the Roadrunners with 6.6 rebounds per game. Johnson III ranks third on the team with 14.3 points per game.


SERIES HISTORY vs. UTSA
Saturday's game marks the second straight season that the Cougars will face UTSA in men's basketball. Houston owns a 7-2 (.778) lead in the all-time series, which began on Dec. 12, 1981.

UTSA can boast of the most recent success after taking an 83-82 win in San Antonio, Texas, on Jan. 1, 2010. Nixon led all players with a career-high 29 points, but it would not be enough for Houston. That loss snapped the Cougars' two-game winning streak against the Roadrunners.

The Cougars are 4-0 against UTSA in Hofheinz Pavilion, but this will be the first meeting in Houston since a 69-49 win on Nov. 30, 1996.

A year ago, Nixon scored a career-high 29 points on 12-of-19 shooting, but it would not


UP NEXT
The Cougars hit the road to meet Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at 7 p.m., Saturday, in Corpus Christi, Texas.

From there, the team returns to the friendly confines of Hofheinz Pavilion to play host during the final two games of 2010. The Cougars meet Sam Houston State at 7 p.m., Dec. 21, and then close out the year against Rogers State at 6 p.m., Dec. 30.

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.
