NCAA Game Summary - Houston at South Florida



(Saturday, January 4th)

Final Score: Houston 67, South Florida 58

Tampa, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - TaShawn Thomas scored 13 points and the Houston Cougars downed the South Florida Bulls, 67-58, at the Sun Dome in American Athletic Conference play.

Thomas sank 6-of-10 shots from the field for the Cougars (10-5, 2-0 AAC). Tione Womack (12 points), Danrad Knowles (12) and Jherrod Stiggers (11) helped pad the offense in the team's third straight win.

Martino Brock led the Bulls (9-6, 0-2) with 11 points. The team's only other double-digit scorer was Chris Perry with 10 points, while John Egbunu responded with nine points and nine rebounds as USF lost for the fourth time in five outings.

The Bulls struggled mightily in the first half, shooting just 32.4 percent from the floor and missing all 10 attempts from 3-point range. The Cougars, shooting 13-of-30 from the field, including 4-of-9 from beyond the arc, took a 34-26 lead into the break.

USF turned it around to shoot 45 percent from the field in the latter 20 minutes of play, but it was too little, too late, as Houston kept it out of reach with a 40 percent shooting performance.

The Bulls made only 52 percent of their foul shots (13-of-25) and turned the ball over 16 times. The Cougars also outscored the hosts in the paint, 30-20.
