HOUSTON, Texas -- The University of Houston Men's Basketball program returns to action at 4 p.m., Saturday, when it plays host to Prairie View A&M inside Hofheinz Pavilion.
The Cougars (5-1) will be looking for their third straight home win to open the 2016-17 season. Houston has won handily in its first two games in front of the hometown fans, taking a 93-52 win over Morgan State in the season opener on Nov. 11 and following that with an 83-53 win over Cornell on Nov. 26.
Houston enters this weekend's contest on the heels of a tough 84-65 loss at LSU on Tuesday night in Baton Rouge, La. That loss snapped the Cougars' five-game winning streak to open the season.
Junior guard Rob Gray led the Cougars with 19 points, including 15 in the first half, while guard Damyean Dotson added 13 points with six rebounds. Junior forward Devin Davis finished with 12 points and four rebounds, while senior center Bertrand Nkali added four points with a career-best eight rebounds and a team-high three blocked shots.
This season, Gray leads the Cougars and ranks fifth in the American Athletic Conference with 18.8 points per game. Sophomore point guard Galen Robinson Jr. stands second in the league with 5.8 assists per game, while Dotson is tied for second with 3.0 3-pointers per contest.
