Recap: Houston vs. UCF

Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Danuel House scored 18 points and Jherrod Stiggers added 17 off the bench, as the Houston Cougars outlasted the UCF Knights, 88-84, in an American Athletic Conference tilt at Hofheinz Pavilion.

Stiggers logged only 20 minutes of floor time but made his presence felt by knocking down 5-of-7 3-pointers. L.J. Rose tallied 12 points and seven assists, while TaShawn Thomas scored 11 to help the Cougars (13-14, 5-9 AAC) stave off a third straight loss.

Tristan Spurlock had a game-high 21 points to pace the Knights (10-15, 2-12). Isaiah Sykes recorded a double-double with 19 points and 13 rebounds, while Kasey Wilson finished with 10 points, seven boards and four steals in the loss.

UCF shot 51.7 percent from the floor and led by as many as five midway through the opening frame. However, the Knights were 5-of-9 from beyond the arc in the half, which ended with the score tied at 42 apiece.

The Cougars were simply too much to handle in the second stanza, as they shot an ultra-efficient 68.4 percent from the floor (13-of-19) and connected on 6- of-9 threes to pull away down the stretch.

The game featured 14 ties and 10 lead changes, but Houston's hot second-half shooting ultimately proved to be the difference.
