Houston Cruises Over Rogers St. 85-48

Maurice McNeil went off for 25 points and 13 boards on 9-12 shooting and the Houston Cougars nearly doubled up the HillCats in a game that was never really close, 85-48. The Coogs shot 50% from the floor, 50% from beyond the arc, and had just eleven turnovers. Meanwhile, Rogers State missed every three pointer they took—all 14 of them—and shot just 37% from the field.

Freshman forward Alandise Harris dropped 12 points and chipped in 11 boards for the Cougars, who moved to 8-5 on the season before they enter the Conference USA portion of their schedule. Kendrick Washington sat out the game with an infection in his elbow, and the team has designated him as day-to-day.

John Boyd led the HillCats with 12 points. Houston will host the 10-2 Southern Miss. Golden Eagles next Wednesday to open up Conference USA action.

Cougars Wrap Up Non-Conference Slate With Rogers State

The Division II Rogers State HillCats come to town to finish off Houston's pre-CUSA schedule today, and they bring a 5-8 club to town to deal with the 7-5 Cougars. Rogers State has just one player from Texas: guard Deveric Taylor, from Dallas. 

This should be a pretty clean-cut affair for the Coogs. Rogers State lost convincingly to TCU and Oral Roberts, the other two Division I teams they've played this season. Look for the Houston Cougars to muscle the HillCats around on defense and feed the ball to their three best scorers: Maurice McNeill, Kendrick Washington, and Adam Brown

The game is at Hofheinz Pavillion and starts at 6 PM. No prediction on this one, mainly because if the Cougars lose to a Division II school at home this year, my brain will explode in a cascade of James Dickey era jokes.
