Houston Falls To Number 16 UCONN






DONNA TOMMELLEO Associated Press Writer

STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Johnnie Selvie scored 21 points and Caron Butler had 15 points, six steals and nine rebounds to lead No. 16 Connecticut to a 72-60 victory over Houston on Thursday night.

Selvie had five points in a pivotal 7-0 run midway through the second half to give the Huskies (5-1) a 9-point lead in a game that had 11 lead changes.

Albert Mouring added 13 for the Huskies, and Edmund Saunders had 12 points and seven rebounds.

George Williams led the Cougars with 15 points and 10 rebounds, and Alton Ford added 13 points.

Both teams struggled early offensively. In the first nine minutes, UConn was 3-of-16 from the field and the Cougars (2-4) hit just two of 11 shots. Midway through the period, the game was tied at 10.

The Cougars blanketed UConn's 3-point specialist Mouring for most of the night. Mouring hit his first 3-pointer with just three minutes remaining in the first half.

The Huskies finally got untracked inside and found Selvie, who had 10 of the Huskies' final 17 points of the half for a 35-30 lead at halftime.

The Cougars opened the second half with an 8-0 run on 3-pointers by Williams and Ford, and Bernard Smith's layup. UConn countered with a 14-7 run, fueled by two 3-pointers from Mouring to take a 49-45 lead. After a pair of free throws by Ford, Selvie kicked off the 7-0 run with a layup with 9:04 left.
