HOUSTON - For the second time this month, University of Houston forward Danuel House was honored Monday as the Conference USA Freshman of the Week.
House played a key role in the Cougars' 80-75 win against Prairie View A&M last weekend in Hofheinz Pavilion. The Hightower High product tied his career high with 22 points and added seven rebounds, four steals and three blocks without a turnover in 34 minutes.
His play down the stretch helped lead the Cougars to the win. With Houston clinging to a 76-72 lead and just more than a minute remaining, House helped force a Prairie View A&M turnover on a fast break. He also nailed four free throws in the final 24.1 seconds to seal the win.
With his impressive numbers, House tied his career high in points, rebounds and assists and established a new personal best in steals.
House earned his first weekly award on Dec. 10 after scoring 22 points with six rebounds in a 79-57 win against Louisiana-Lafayette on Dec. 15.
Tulane's Josh Davis was honored as the C-USA Player of the Week.
House and the Cougars continue their season-long homestand when they play host to Texas-Pan American at 7 p.m., Thursday, inside Hofheinz Pavilion. From there, the stand wraps up when the Cougars open Conference USA play against SMU at 7 p.m., Jan. 9.
