Houston vs. TCU final score: Cold-shooting Cougars hang on for 54-48 win

US PRESSWIRE

The Houston Cougars slid by the TCU Horned Frogs on Tuesday night to halt a two-game losing streak.

Following a pair of losses over the last week, the Houston Cougars bounced back for a much-needed 54-48 win over the TCU Horned Frogs on Tuesday evening in Fort Worth.

Houston shot a poor 34.0% from the field and 14.3% from three-point range despite the victory, and managed to overcome 15 turnovers to hold off the Horned Frogs when the final buzzer sounded. Leading scorer TaShawn Thomas once again paced the Cougars offensively with 19 points and 12 rebounds over a team-high 29 minutes, and also blocked a shot for the eighth consecutive game.

A pair of Horned Frog players put forth standout performances in the losing effort, as guard Kyan Anderson racked up a game-high 20 points with four made three-pointers. Not to be outdone, Anderson's teammate Adrick McKinney provided a huge boost off the bench with 10 points and a career-high 20 rebounds.

Now with a 3-1 record when playing on the road this season, the Cougars will continue their tour of the state with a game against Texas Southern scheduled for this Saturday. The two programs have not faced off since back in the 2007-08 season, in a game where Houston prevailed late, 73-66.
